The latest video from Crane.tv takes viewers into the Paris practice of Agence Chartier-Corbasson, where Thomas Corbasson, one half of the founding duo, explains the firm's ongoing "competition of ideas" for developing an organic skyscraper.

Envisioned for what Corbasson describes as the "very dynamic city" of London, the "self-growing" tower is an exercise in biomimicry, drawing inspiration from coral and fractals to create "a sort of organic scaffolding." As yet, the project has no client, but Corbasson is confident that the concept will be met with interest.

"It's the social role of an architect to create something beautiful," he told Crane.tv, "And if we can use something ugly like pollution to create beauty then I think we, as architects, are useful."
