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!

...More ideas anyone?

I would love to try this in the North West Americas, up in the redwoods. They are so beautiful, in many ways. Very inspirational, thank you for posting.

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.

Thanks for the photos.
I had a dream once of a living bridge and now I know they are real. I thought it was just my very vivid imagination.
