Biological Form: Times Eureka Pavilion



Designed by Nex Architecture and landscape architect Marcus Barnett , this literal architectural interpretation of the cellular structure of a plant was modeled using computer algorithms mimicking natural plant growth.  The pavilion was designed for the Chelsea Flower Show in London, and located within the Eureka Garden: a garden with plants known for their specific benefits to society (medicinal, commercial and industrial).  The designers felt that the design would provide visitors with a unique opportunity to experience plant growth patterns at a human scale.
