One part, a computational exploration of form through the analysis of a lily, this project is perhaps a critique and reflection of the traditional greenhouse. 

"Everyone who oberves the growth of a plant, even superficially, will notice that certain external parts of them becomes transformed at times and go over into the forms of the contiguous parts, now completely, not to a greater or less degree. Thus for example, the single lower is transformed into a double when, instead of stamens, petals are developed, which are either exactly like the other petals of the corolla in form, and color, or else still bear visible signs of their origin."
