  • Location
    . Czech Republic, Prague, traffic Tunel Blanka air shaft

. Plant offers the artistic alternative to the rough concrete air shaft at traffic tunnel Blanka. The aim was to work with nature-like principles of growth to create a unique art-nature-architecture solution. L-systems mimic the growth of plants with possibility to modify generated structures during the design process. Periodicity and symetry found in zoomorphic patterns initiated the idea to create an coherent component repeating structure. Because of component repetition,the structural parts would be less demanding in actual production and on-site assembly.

. Construction consists of alluminium stripes and body sheets. The stripes form upper crown of Plant and the pergola structure in parterre. The body sheets are cast into a milled mould, with no surface finnish.
