The world of undesired plants

Nobuyoshi Yokota was born in Nara, Japan in November 1984. After he received his master’s degree from the Kanazawa University College of Art, he worked in a design firm as an architect in order to learn practical architectural design. He then received a 1st grade architecture license in Japan.

In the biological world, there are species that are perceived as undesirable in a particular area. The purpose of this project is to redefine the biological infrastructure of those undesired plants. Three spaces are created from new undesired plant materials which have been given back to human ecosystems, ground cover plants, mycelium, and birds. This is done not only through the existence of these spaces but also through their disappearance. This project creates a “living architecture” while indicating the slow death of architecture which is believed to be semi-permanent.
