Somewhere in 2222, the humanity was tired of the endless crises: economic, social, cultural and scientific. It has completely revised the basic principles of logic, rejecting, inter alia, an abstract rectangular geometry, and other simplifying schemes and taking the theory of complexity and uncertainty as the main, that completely changed its outlook.

Development of new ideas is manifested in sculpture and architecture (which can be observed in this project), and in all other areas.

Grass-city is a city composed of grass-buildings, (or buildings-trees). Every building - a symbiosis of live genetically modeled structures - “factories and human habitation. Different buildings make (or grow) the different products. Its pollution is no more than from the plants.

Here we can see one of the variants of the development of sustainability ideas in the future.

A certain number of people lives in each house, occupying less than 1 / 3 of its volume. In the grass-building they are working, monitor the status of factory, producing experiments or designing new buildings - plants. There are no ground transportation in this city: people use portable aircraft, cargo moving through the tubes roots in the ground. Periodically, people can move from house to house, nano-robots can fully transfer (or copy) the familiarity of home (furniture and other home furnishings consist of nano-elements).

The space between houses is completely given to pedestrians, there are placed objects of modern art, sculpture, museums, art galleries, holographic cinema, exhibitions of innovations in the development of plants and animals and much more. Climate in the bottom watered by the activity of plants-houses, gardens and parks are located at the top - on the roof.
