50 Botanical Architecture Examples

From Perforated Petal Facades to Modern Flower Pavillions

— July 22, 2014 — Eco
These botanical architecture examples range from perforated petal facades to garden-infused structures. These skyscrapers, museums and interiors illustrate the popularity of flower and plant accents when it comes to today's most innovative built environments.

Whether creating botanical architecture that is aesthetically striking or ecologically responsible, designers are incorporating floral motifs or living ecosystems within their latest creations.

Standouts from this list include the Eathouse garden house by De Stuurlui architects and Mareines and Patalano's Casa Folha design. While De Stuurlui's concept relies on sustainable practices and creates natural food sources for its inhabitants, Mareines and Patalano's design is more centered around aesthetics and boasts a floral shape that branches out into 6 petal elements.

Other notable examples from the list include the Inujima Art House Project that features floral art work by Kazuyo Sejima of SANAA studios.
