William Lee Surface Design has developed a biodegradable ‘seeded’ concrete in collaboration with a materials scientist and  Shire Green Roof Substrates Ltd . The unique concrete provides an opportunity to welcome nature within architectural design, as well as provide a solution to lost habitats of native wildlife and flower species. With a similar consistency of regular concrete, the seeds start to germinate once water is added to the material. Plant growth through the substance slowly breaks down the material, which then decomposes into soil to make it completely biodegradable. + William Lee Surface Design The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
