Nice example of blob architecture meets skyscraper. Looks like it could grow!

A highrise with curves?
This building reminds me of plot construction. Which intails the process of filling a mould of the level of a building with material (say concrete). Once the level drys the process is repeated. Mostly a technical story.
However as in my "Orangina project", bottum-up design when considering scientific systems is another flock of sheep altogether:)
The question is reversed. It's no longer "how do we construct a material to build. Instead, how do we build a material to construct.
If we were to redifine this concept as above suggested I think a horizontal hierarchy would exist and market clusters would be a thing of the past.

I'd like to see Debbie Mollenhagen develop her ideas about growing pods for living, would be a nice version of her Orangina project.

they'll look like the buildings that allready look like flowers? Or like buildings like we know them now? Plants are more and more build, so we could also say that there will be no difference between buildings and plants. Just made for another purpose...

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
