Gallery: Aeroflorale II: La Machine Erects an Animated Hanging Garden I...

It is adorned with propellers, fins, and hanging gardens - in addition to other strange objects.

This is not the first time La Machine has awed the world with its strange sculptures. Previously the group created a moving metal spider and a giant iron elephant – projects that Architizer compared to Vladimir Tatlin’s unrealized Constructivist Tower that would have been erected in Petrograd following the Bolshevik Revolution.

In addition to being an impressive work of industrial-chic art, Aeroflorale II is also part of a botanical expedition that collects crops and plant life from around the world with the aim of developing alternative sources of energy – a feasible plan considering that researchers have developed potato-powered batteries and other plant-based energy solutions. We can’t speak for Leonardo, but we suspect he would be pretty chuffed by the Aeroflorale II!
