Fascinating gallery and piece on a failes science experiment building.
Photographer Noah Sheldon got in touch the other week with a beautiful series of photos documenting the decrepit state of Biosphere 2, a semi-derelict bio-architectural experiment in the Arizona desert.
The largest sealed environment ever created, constructed at a cost of $200 million, and now falling somewhere between David Gissen's idea of subnature?wherein the slow power of vegetative life is unleashed "as a transgressive animated force against buildings"?and a bioclimatically inspired Dubai, Biosphere 2 even included its own one million-gallon artificial sea.
