Vincent Callebaut Architectures – inspiring us all with dramatic green architectural statements. The Belgian architectural designer clearly has a passion for design that takes on environmental issues. Becuase of that, his designs always find there way to Inhabitat as well.
In the Inhabitat article on the Physalia they write:
Vincent Callebaut, visionary behind the Lilypad and Dragonfly, has created a whale-shaped floating garden designed to drift through the world’s rivers while purifying their waters. The Physalia is a self-sufficient ecosystem that generates all the power it needs from the sun and works to reduce water pollution through bio-filtration.
One consistent trait in the images created for the various projects is the dreamy, clean rendering work for the quite complex design ideas. The colour pallet is bright, green, white and things take on an even more other-worldly feel in the night shots. There are a swarm of images for the firms many projects and here are a few to whet your appetite:
