The term "Baubotanik" stands for a basic approach to engineer with living plants. It is a construction method that provides a technique to let buildings arise out of the interoperation of technical joining and vegetable growth. For this purpose, living and nonliving structural details are joined in a way they can grow together into a botanical and technical compound structure: Single plants merge into a new and bigger overall organism and technical elements are included into the vegetable structure during the period of growth.
