Veg.itecture: VIA I'm Lost in Paris

Arch Daily offered some juicy pics of the project by R&Sie(n) in Paris, France entitled 'I'm Lost in Paris' - which sported some vertical hydroponics, rainwater harvesting, and blown glass features in this private laboratory. Interesting system of mesh and plant containers - utilizing hydroponic principles.

Some info about the project: "According to the wiki, Hydroponics (from the Greek words hydro water and ponos labour) is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, without soil. Terrestrial plants may be grown with their roots in the mineral nutrient solution only or in an inert medium, such as perlite, gravel, or mineral wool." Check out more images below, and more expansive, as usual, coverage on Arch Daily.
