Rue de Meaux Housing is a low income social housing project. “Architect Renzo Piano teamed up with Desvigne and Dalnoky to design an amazing courtyard space for their project in Paris. A modular architectural design establishes a background for the small forest of birch trees. The thin birch canopy creates a diaphanous lighting condition while still obstructing views across the courtyard, thereby providing the inhabitants access to both privacy and light.” - http://ayounghare.wordpress.com

Above: Salmonberry is a species of Rubus native to the west coast of North America from west central Alaska to California. Salmonberries are found in moist forests and stream margins, especially in the coastal forests. They often form large thickets, and thrive in the open spaces under stands of Red Alder. Salmonberries are edible and share the fruit structure of the raspberry, with the fruit pulling away from its receptacle.
