The Urban Cactus – architecture at its best!

I came across this amazing example of genius architecture this weekend – The Urban Cactus.

The Urban Cactus is a housing project in Rotterdam.


The structure is 19 floors high with 98 residential apartments, each with outdoor space in the form of balconies built at alternating angles to give the overall illusion of a cactus. It also means that each apartments benefits from more sunlight and better views across the harbour and over the city of Rotterdam – excellent! London needs an Urban Cactus too please!
