nature-disabling urban design

nature disabling design

Nature is unstoppable. On the photos (shot around Dublin and Copenhagen) are areas, surfaces what humans intended 'plant-free', but nature seem to find soil and nutrition everywhere, even where we see nothing.

Some urban designs, architecture actively encourage nature to penetrate urban spaces. Some try the opposite.

What are the cultural, demographic motives behind the varied levels of nature-friendliness in urban spaces, architecture? What are the related costs to them not only in fiscal, but also in mental and physical health terms.

How would Dublin end up looking like, if every Dubliner took a 15 year holiday at the same time, leaving the city empty and unmaintained?
