Imagine we'll see this soon at your local building supply shop ... the eksovest takes strain off arms and back. Uses springs rather than anything electric.

The earliest born man ever to be photographed.
He’s 103 in the photo, and crossed the Delaware with George Washington in his youth.

:uhoh: The sheer number of spiders that must live there...


Very cool though, on a serious note. Must be an external lattice the vines latch on to (?). Provides a little shade for the building too. Aesthetically, it softens the glass and concrete building as well. I wonder where this is. First time I've seen one of these that's not an image of a futuristic building concept.

Photo doesn’t do it justice.

A real clever piece of inner-city urban lifespace architecture. Very pretty to look at too.

Bosco verticale in Milan is even more impressive, as it is an attempt to create a vertical forest.

I can't see the available root volume supporting that amount of foliage for very long.

Effectively adding a live load once the wind comes into play, though you'd imagine they'd have that sorted. Natural light won't be great, piss poor for passive solar and doesn't look like there is anything edible. Looks good though.

It does? My first thought was "abandoned building," maybe a set from a year or two into the Walking Dead.
