In a short film called New York Biotopes, the street furniture and fixtures of New York comes to strange, organic life.

What if one day, your city evolved, came to life, grew and bred?

New York Biotopes is the bachelor graduation project of Lena Steinkühler, a graphic design student in Germany. It details the evolution of a city where, due to insufficient living space for vegetation, benches, power lines, street lamps and traffic lights evolve into strange, organic plants.

They assimilate with and adapt to the city, incorporating its elements to create a benign, symbiotic relationship with the humans that live therein.
