Material and its Properties
The used recycled rubber tires represent a material that has been traditionally viewed as a pollutant, but in the case of this builing it supports a cascading plant ecosystem, which brings new life to the building.
Through the use of rubber ties as urban planters a unique vertical green space is created that also provides a new method for recycling.
