Diploma Project
The World of Undesired Plants

The World of Undesired Plants aims to redefine the biological infrastructure of undesired plants, as there are species in the biological world perceived as invasive or foreign to a particular area. Three spaces are created from new undesired plant materials that have been reintroduced into human ecosystems. This is accomplished not only through the existence of these spaces but also through their disappearance. The project creates a “living architecture” while indicating the slow death of architecture, believed to be semi-permanent.
