Planter brick

Planter brick

Planter Bricks, by Emerging Objects, are custom designed concrete masonry units that can hold plants and vegetation. The planter bricks have the potential to counter the heat island effect in big cities through evapotranspiration and pollution conversion. The plants in the wall help mediate the temperature of the microclimate surrounding the building, buffer sound and help filter the air.

The Nest

The Nest

The Nest, by Vietnamese architects a21studio, has a light structure constructed in steel and metal sheets instead of the usual bricks and concrete.

The see-through outer facade in mesh and corrugated panels functions as a boundary fence. Beyond it, the house has no walls on the front or rear of its ground floor, revealing a simple living room and kitchen with a small garden beyond.

Reused furniture, abandoned but still in good condition, reduces cost but also gives the house a distinctive look, the beauty or serenity of old items that comes with age.
