Modern Architecture: Vegetation-Covered Headquarters

2010 April 21

Italian architecture firm StudioDosi proposed this double-skinned, vegetation-covered headquarters for the Province of Parma. Located in Italy, the four-story 145,000 sq foot (13,500 sq meter) structure features a wide array of green building strategies, extensive gardens, and a living exoskeleton meant to provide shade and natural ventilation for the building underneath.
