Pictures: If the world was ‘green’

Dutch firm STAR strategies +architecture has created a satirical piece in response to ‘green washing’.

The series of images, entitled O’ Mighty Green, depict a number of famous monuments covered in foliage.

STAR’s Beatriz Ramo said that an abuse of green has permeated design, architecture, urbanism, and  ‘in general every aspect of society’. She added that there is a lack of criticism of ‘green’ and it is accepted as the solution to every problem.

The study was exhibited at the International Festival of Experimental Architecture Eme3 in Barcelona in July and received an award from the jury.
