Could we grow houses?

Imagine architecture was alive and growing like plants

Growing organic architecture

Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt

Looking at the seeds in the bucket I wondered if we will one day be able to create houses that grows like trees

I was planting wild flower seeds and these tiny seeds are so amazing. The thought that a tiny amount in a bucket can grow into a field of flowers. Each one of the seeds unique in its form and potential I imagined houses could some day be like them.

Not a new thought I’ve done drawings of this through the years, here are a few of growing houses and organic architecture
