Project Description

Nominee: David Benjamin

David Benjamin designed a tower that creates a cool-micro-climate in searing cities. The tower is made entirely from organic material that can be turned into fertilizer.

The building is going to be placed in New York this summer, and should help pedestrians cool down from the summer heat. The ‘bricks’ are mushroom cells that grow upwards like a branch and can be shaped by the architect however he likes.
