#52: Giant Iron Tree Built Into Russian Ministry of Agriculture
A giant iron tree was built into the side of the Russian Ministry of Agriculture, but it looks exactly like wood! What a stunning sight to behold. Something about the juxtaposition between the mangled tree and pristine columns really works here. It represents the balance and collaboration between nature and humankind. The dome contains beautiful symmetry, while the crown around it really tops it off (pun intended).
In past years, a major trend in the design world is incorporating nature more and more. It makes me smile! This is Russia’s agricultural building, so it only makes sense to incorporate a piece of nature. Hopefully, they have some real trees inside too!
