ASPECT Studios is recently working in the emerging area of Living Architecture in Australia.“Living Architecture” is the integration of plants and water with built form. It includes green roofs, green facades, and green walls. Based on recent environmental issues,Living Architecture is now being recognised in Australia as a critical concept in responding to climate change and the increased demand of water and energy in our cities.

They use real plants called Victorian Desalination Plant as a part of building materials to achieve the concept of “living”. And the idea of Living Architecture is not only to make buildings’ environment more comfortable and nature, but also reflect the issue of “ the real nature out there is being damaged and our living environment is getting worse” ,also notice human we need to take some actions to protect our nature environment .
