Ahhhh brutalism + plants
@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 Yesssss~ 😊❤
@SanfordianPhil I call it Greater Apocalyptica
@SanfordianPhil Oh yes, pretty pretty.
@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
@SanfordianPhil I love how this is the official architecture of Mastodon.
@erosdiscordia it is so perfect
@SanfordianPhil where is this?
@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 its funny brutalism need plants to not be depressing
@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
@SanfordianPhil here are the concepts https://interestingengineering.com/china-vertical-forest-fight-air-pollution
@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!
The second one looks like the convention center in Seattle. No so much brutalist as an MC Escher drawing come to life.
@SanfordianPhil rootalism? Grootalism?
@SanfordianPhil I fuckin' love it
@SanfordianPhil plant heavy brutalism is one of my favorite combos
@SanfordianPhil Soo brutal!
@SanfordianPhil brants or plantalism?
@SanfordianPhil yo I LOVE this
yea this the kind of brutalism i like
@SanfordianPhil I didn't know this could be a fetish... but here we are 乁(ツ)ㄏ
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
