Just stumbled across this article about the ancient art of living-bridge making. Engineering will be one of our first apocalyptic losses, so seems
important. "Why build a bridge when you can grow one?"
Root bridges take about 10 to 15 years to become fully functional - but they last 5 or 6 centuries. Sounds like good planning to me!
Very cool idea. It would only work in certian regions though as those vines don't grow everywhere. But as far as arcitectural designs for the
appocolapse goes I figure I'll just find a hill in the midle of nowhere and dig myself a house into the side of it. Use a bunch of scrap plastic for
moisture barrier and insulation.
