Chlorofilia - a new species of architecture


The History Channel recently held a competition inviting architectural teams to design a city of the future, to envision Los Angeles, New York and Chicago a hundred years from now.

The entry from Xefirotarch, invents and imagines an organic, biomimetic future for LA - literally a new species of architecture. You can view the video (created in collaboration with Imaginary Forces) on YouTube here.

Los Angeles in 2106 becomes Chlorofilia, a "self-sustaining, self-protecting natural ecology, used converted highways as aqueducts and dispersed nutrients into an adaptable organism that continuously adjusted itself to changes in demographics and housing requirements."
