Although it's said to have been inspired by mangrove trees, the Mangal City project by Chimera looks like its encrusted with barnacles to me. The spiraling skyscrapers belong to a series designed for an “urban ecological system” in London, England.

After looking at the gallery of the Chimera Mangal City project, check out some other spiraling skyscrapers and architecture inspired by nature in the related articles below.

Implications - As globalization and urban populations continue to increase, many individuals feel as if the time they are able to spend outside with nature is decreasing. Businesses will benefit by providing such individuals with products that enable to share comparable feelings and pleasures. Consumers will be drawn to a company that is capable of providing them with a similar experience that is more suitable for their chaotic lifestyle.
