7 Futuristic Nature-Meets-Design Concepts1. The Fab Tree HabThe concept: Houses that are grown instead of built. Yes, it could take seven years, depending on weather conditions. But let's assume after that start-up phase, we'd just move from tree to tree. Eco cred: No damage to the environment. We become part of it, rather than the other way around. Homes use living trees still integrated into their ecosystems. Your house would be grafted into shape, and branches would be trained to be woven together to form archways, lattices and screens through an ancient process called pleaching. Is anyone else thinking of Avatar's Pandora people?Mind behind the design: Terreform One

What a fascinating idea to have a home made out of a living tree! Now that's really eco friendly!
