The astonishing Times Eureka Pavilion at the Chelsea Flower Show takes us deep into the structure of a leaf with its biomimetic design. The newly completed pavilion is set amidst a bounty of flowing plants, and it takes structural cues from the intricate growing patterns of leaves.

    I really enjoy good solid architecture when I see it because it is the consequence of a process of conscious analysis and creativity and the end product delivers a clear functional and beautiful message to final user and the environment where it belongs, and this is a wonderful example of it.
    I can’t say the same about a lot of examples where published today where form is above all considerations, thanks to popular good abused 3D Cad Software. This new trend in contemporary design should be called “3D Sculptural Architecture” and will last, I hope, the same as Neoclassic architecture RIP .

    This is a very interesting building! I would love to see it from the inside.

    I saw something similar in the structure of the Petronas Towers when placed side by side Karl Blossfeldt’s photogravure, plate #3.
