    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Plants take root in the earth and grow from there. A building does the same, growing out of its plan. But the analogy goes even further since the plant is also an architectural program. Analyzing the case of the water treatment plant in Los Angeles, USA, this text explores the multiple and unexpected relationships between plants and architecture and, even, the architecture of plants.
