“Vegetal City” by Luc Schuiten


The beginning of the millennium is characterized by a growing awareness of the importance of the climatic changes on our future. From all sides, the scientists ring the alarm bell. UNESCO, Giec, the international summits of Rio, Johannesburg and Bali anticipate the worst for the coming century if we do not change our behaviour radically.

The message is carried out daily by the media. It turns out that the autorities and decision maker’s plans are inadequate to effectively stop the emergency of this already urgent matter. The purpose of “Vegetal City” is to demonstrate that a long lasting and bright future is possible for the planet, through an innovative process.

This life to come has to be considered like an attempt of reconcialiation and cooperation with nature, in order to enable us to live together in a balanced harmony.


The website Vegetal City is conceived as a progression in time and space, through Luc Schuiten’s eye. It takes us on the path of this thoughts about Mother Nature’s presence as a model of a new way of building named by him “archiborescence”.For three decades, this eco-visionary has been imagining and realizing homes, urban landscapes, cities… inspired by all he has been able to observe in natural environments.The website opens the door to a harmonious future, possible through the modifications of our behaviours in our living environments. Nature is no longer considered as an inexhaustible manna from heaven but rather as an ally, likely to cooperate in edification of a long lasting society.
