With these Planter Bricks available, gardening would no longer be a practice completely detached from the structure of your home. There would be no need for the installation of separate window boxes in order to establish some place for the germination of plants; this unique piece of masonry offers four little pockets for just that purpose.

Designed by Rael San Fratello Architects, the building blocks are custom-made from concrete and manufactured through the cutting-edge process of 3D printing technology. There are different options available for their dimensions and shapes, and the number and size of the niches.

One is afforded the freedom of incorporating the Planter Bricks into a mural intermittently, in patterns or to combine them into a homogenous green wall.
