Wild urban vegetation is often ignored, so art students Audrey Charré, Clémentine Schmidt and Luc Beaussart came up with these cute ‘Urban Greenhouses‘ to honor plants growing in cracks in buildings or sidewalks. The brightly colored 3D spaces protect plants from being stepped on or knocked over, honoring life while calling attention to the vital force of nature in urban environments.
