Postcard Architecture

In researching Edouard François’ Eden Bio public housing project in Paris’ 20th arrondissement, I came upon this photo. The model reminds me of the postcard gardens of my previous post:

Which does NOT mean that François is a master of Postcard Architecture: his work is remarkable and gives plants prime position in his urban constructions. But it does mean that the Postcarden concept makes a great architectural model for green projects. Here is another one, the “city” version.

Now that spring has finally arrived in Paris, I will report from the real Eden Bio later this week…

Horticulturally yours,

Lisa
