      It’s Japan. They’ll just knock it down and start from scratch in 10 years anyway.

        Being Japan, the plants might stitch it together for an extra 5 years.

        It’s Japan - those plants started growing in the late 1970s. It’s probably the only thing holding the house together at this point.

      What if you didn’t have any integrity to start with?

      Looks like they’re using a combination of metal and bamboo scaffolding to help support everything. I had the same initial worry, but it might be fine. A reverse image search didn’t immediately turn up the same building. If it’s in Tokyo, I wanted to walk by and see for myself (though I don’t think I’d take picture; that feels a bit creepy).

        Climbing vines like that have a tendency to tear into cracks in whatever they’re climbing, increasing water ingress. They also tear off the protective layering on brick/concrete walls.

        Looks hella dope though🌳

    It’s either that or post-apocalyptic, which when u think about it, is kinda the same

    Hah, this is more “add jungle” than just “add plants”.

    And invite all the spiders in the entire neighborhood? Thanks, but no thanks.

    I wonder how the neighbors feel about it, and if the closest two ever get any plant visitors occasionally. Lol
