Italian architect Gaetano Pesce is the mastermind of this amazing organic building in Osaka, Japan. This interesting structure features extruding 'plant pockets' all-over its exterior; a modern take on the hanging gardens of Babylon perhaps?
The striking idea contributes to the overall original look of the building, which happens to be one of the city's most renowned landmarks for the past couple of years. In case you are wondering what this structure houses - it is a nine-floor building with 7,052 square meters of interior space, with restaurants and many business offices are housed within. The 'hanging gardens' feature 80 different species of plants which were
specially selected via the recommendation of local horticulturists, although the most predominant happens to be that of bamboo (hm, go figure?)
