Appearing at a crucial time in which we are being forced to reconsider our relationship with the planet, this book explores the irony of toxic plants. By exposing the fragile beauty of dried specimens in photographs, we learn of their physical potency in their potential to cause detrimental harm. Part one is an assemblage of archival images of plants which are found in Israel and neighboring countries. Part two is a philosophical meditation that considers the different facets of reality, providing an opportunity to encounter the speculative aspects of architecture through plantscapes. This collection is presented by Tel Aviv-based collaborative design practice AN+. Foreword by Piet Oudolf.
