Harmonia 57 is Triptyque’s office building located in west Sao Paulo, Brazil. This building works as a living body. It breaths, sweats and modifys itself, transcending its inertia. The walls are simple, thick, and covered externally by a vegetal layer, working as the skin of the structure. This dense wall is made of an organic concrete that has pores, where several plant species grow, giving the facades a unique look.
