Living construction

Employing living plants as integral elements in the construction of spaces and objects.

Living construction refers to the use of living organisms, typically plants or other biological materials, as integral components in the creation of structures, buildings, or objects. This approach often involves designing and constructing with living organisms to enhance sustainability, environmental impact, and aesthetic qualities. Examples include using living plants for walls, roofs, or facades to create green or "living" buildings. Living construction methods aim to integrate natural elements into the built environment, fostering a harmonious relationship between human-made structures and the surrounding ecosystem.
