They shouldn't be blamed for this, actually we should admire this attitude. It's bold and it must be appreciates because they're looking ahead in the future and setting some landmarks for the young architects that will come.

For us, the humble mortals, they're offering a great spectacle of shapes and colors, leaving us the opportunity to simply gaze at their brilliant work.  In the 90′s, many great architects were gathered in Netherlands to rejuvenate the city with modern buildings? Well, it's time for Dubai and Beijing to collect all the architects with vision. They have an intelligent strategy of investing in modern buildings in order to attract tourists and also prepare themselves for the future. Fortunate for them, they have a lot of space to build new architectural wonders, unlike European cities were there isn't place to build even a small boutique.

International Mosaiculture Exhibition

Even if you're not into gardening yourself, the plant sculptures in the international Montreal Mosaiculture Exhibition will blow your mind. As defined in the official website of the event, mosaiculture "is a refined horticultural art that involves creating and mounting living artworks made primarily from plants with colourful foliage (generally annuals, and occasionally perennials)." It is also a highly complex form of art, requiring different sets of skills from all the participating artists: not only do they have to plan and build the framework of the sculpture and match the colors, it is also important to understand the maintenance of each plant they use.
