It's time. I have no idea what this does but I hope it makes me stop thinking people are actually talking to me

@SanfordianPhil damn I’ve always thought brutalism was just downright ugly. this rules

@j997922 yeah, until I saw my first picture of people incorporating plants in the design I thought so too. Like even if the brutalism was *interesting* it was still ugly to me

@SanfordianPhil second one is freeway park in seattle! it's a lid over I-5, with the convention center in the background.

@grant nice! I like the idea of driving under underpasses that have things growing on them

@meena I have no idea about 1 and 3. Someone told me in the comments that the overpass is in Seattle though. I was just looking at concrete building with plants on google because they are nice to look at

@SanfordianPhil so beautiful!! I can't wait until vertical forests are a thing... I hear there are a few places including Italy and China that are experimenting with them but I've yet to see any pics

@LPS they seem both good asthetic and good health

@SanfordianPhil I'm sure they'd be an easy sell for residents as well:) If I had a choice of a regular glass and steel highrise or that .... no question!

@SanfordianPhil last thing, I found it! This actually exists in Milan, real video of the "flying gardeners"

@SanfordianPhil
The second one looks like the convention center in Seattle. No so much brutalist as an MC Escher drawing come to life.

@SanfordianPhil I didn't know this could be a fetish... but here we are 乁(ツ)ㄏ
