Luc Schuiten

The Belgian architect Luc Schuiten is the brother of the graphic artist François Schuiten and the son of an architect. His work is highly individual, closely entwined with nature, hinging on a concept that he himself named Archiborescence. His idea involves using different types of living organism as building materials through research into biotechnology. He is currently working on a project for a utopian vegetal city made up of tree habitats.
