Creting Architecture in the way that plant's ecosystems adapt themselves to the surrounding environment

Studio Velocity as Architects

With a plant for example, a seedling grows straight when it germinates without any context in the immediate environment.


However, a seedling grows its stem and leaves by responding to its environment when it is surrounded by many kinds of plants.


Plants consider how to grow the stems and leaves by judging their surrounding environment.


We were interested in designing architecture that exhibits a similar quality.


In this project, we carefully investigated the site and its surroundings, allowing these to shape one building.
