In creating a new concept for the Malopolska Science Center in Krakow, Poland, architecture firm OVO Grabszewscy Architekci worked to make the building reflect its contents as much as possible. Thus they ended up with a building that appears to be as much a natural entity as it is an artificial one, with a tiered, lattice-like exterior that is equipped to hold a lush and green series of gardens.
Though currently only represented in concept images, the ideal version of the Malopolska Science Center would appear to be almost entirely green from the outside. This includes both the roof and the sides of the building, with open spaces toward the bottom to serve as entrances and exits and a grid for holding plants throughout the rest.
