Weekend Photo Theme is a weekly photography article where Dale or Franca choose a theme, select 5 pictures to sum that theme up & tie them together with their interests of Architecture, Art, Design & Travel.

Even if I was born and raised in a small town of the South of Italy, I’ve always been a big fan of cities with the occasional escape or weekend away immersed in the nature or by the sea.

In an era where the artificial is present in any aspects of our daily life, finding something ‘natural’ especially in the chaos of the city is pretty hard.

I like the idea of using living nature as a construction material, plants and architecture should be used more and more together so that the urban environments and landscapes can take on a new perspective.
I like to see how designers and architects use different techniques to make this possible.

Here are few shots of some of the ‘green’ architecture we saw along the way.
