Argentinian artist Tomas Saraceno is one for creating experimental artworks that explore a variety of themes and issues. His architectural background has him toying in both design and architecture.

Tomas Saraceno takes upon the task of addressing the question of overpopulation, migration, visionary city planning solutions and environmental issues in his work. His latest works of art are a series of complex floating habitable geometric shapes. These floating gardens are his standpoint to tackle environmental issues and create cleaner living in tight city cores.

Tomas Saraceno, who is now an architect at Universidad Nacional de Buenos Aires, is hoping his designs can be contributed for eco-development. His architectural eco-art has been displayed in exhibits all around the world. Hopefully, his conscious creations will be seen in real-wold use.
