Ivy Takes Over

Ivy Takes Over

I think I’ve a bit of an obsession lately with nature ‘taking buildings back’; or at least the way that plants, nature and wildlife occupy urban space. Ever so occasionally you come across a building like this one where the owners and occupants have just let the plants have their own way for whatever reason. It’s like a vertical lawn of sorts. The building is down Friedelstraße in the ‘Kreuzkölln’ (Kreuzberg/Neukölln border zone) area, and I love it. Fortunately the colours of the leaves and the sky were practically singing as I walked past yesterday so I managed to quickly grab this. Hope you like it, I think it looks strangely unreal in a way.
