  • This is a beautiful (or at least I can imagine it to be beautiful covered in ivy) intervention for a traffic circle. Its kind of like an green covered tower of babel. i bet it would look stunning in the fall with the leaves turning reds and oranges - like flames licking up the sides of the structure!

  • That is actually a commentary on the tower of babel.It's a water tower wrapped around in vegetation. One of the first built projects by pritzker prize winner christian de portzamparc, in the new town of marne la vallée, in the suburbs of paris. it is quite well-known as a project around here...
