Plants on Buildings

Plants. They are even better hanging on walls.



On the Musée du Quai Branly they grow plants. On. That is the correct preposition. All sorts. I was riding a bicycle and I looked up and realized that this is the museum Jean Nouvel built. I had always heard about it - hovering on the left bank over the river - but hadn't really noticed it yet. Jean Nouvel is the yummy French architect who designed 100 Eleventh in New York - a building that I've been drooling over for its quilt-like qualities (since its architectural renderings were first delivered to the office I worked at in New York last year)...who knew that a glass building could be patchwork?! Pictured below.






The above-referenced Jean Nouvel building on Eleventh Street in Manhattan - no plants on this baby. Just quilt squares. Less organic. Equally notable.
