natural architecture.

June 11, 2009
something about these images from alessandro rocca’s natural architecture (the book) feels so magical–as if the natural world itself had shaped itself into this new form. they also remind me of building forts with my sisters and of the summer i spent maintaining hiking trails in vermont. i think someday i want to create an “organic highway” of my very own. for more details on the book and the artists, head here
