In a world of tight spaces and growing pollution, one has to be creative. Italian architect Gaetano Pesce designed this amazing organic building in Osaka, Japan. The walls of the construction feature interesting extruded pockets with plants, thus creating an impromptu vertical garden. This idea also contributes to the overall original look of the building which made it become one of the city’s landmarks in the past years. The 80 types of plants and trees were selected by asking help from specialized local horticulturists, but the main species is Bamboo. In case you are wondering what this structure houses, know that is is a nine-floor building with 7,052 square meters of interior space. Restaurants and many business offices are headquartered here.-via Inhabitat
