Lisbon based e-studio has recently developed an organic concrete. The Beto Organico has a permeable surface which allows plants to grow out of it. This new material exploits concrete?s capacity to trap water and retain humidity, so the substance can nourish plants even during a dry spell. The organic concrete makes it possible to create permeable living surfaces, allowing architects and urban designers to incorporate a bit of greenery directly into their designs.
