New York Concepts

Against the uniform and motionless roof structures so common in traditional modernist skyscrapers PARASITUS_ IMPERATOR acts as a catalyst who injects life, sensuality and richness into a New York roof top. Inspiration comes from the behaviour of parasites that infects and transforms through elaborate mechanisms and strategies the behaviour of the host.

The roof top is colonised through a skin made of red Corian panels and warm-coloured timber all computer-cut that provides a path and a terrace through the movement of the grasses and the water lilies. The planting plan is completed with architectural Cordylines encapsulated in pods hanging outside the walls.
