Self directed ( Angkor)

Angkor is the name given to a region of Cambodia which was thought to be the center of the Khmer empire. The city was abandoned thousands of years ago and since then the city has surrendered more and more to the jungle. The image above shows just how versatile plants can get when trying to survive.The second image is of some baroque detailing taken from a roof. What i think links the two images is how they both depict nature or a natural form encasing an existing structure. These aspects of how plants/nature occupy space and what a living thing will do to survive appeal to my project.
