Mission Statement

The mission of the Living Root Bridge Project is to gather as much information about the subject of traditional botanical architecture as possible, and then to present this information in a clear, free, public, and unbiased way. The goal of this is to enhance the overall state of knowledge of the subject, and so in turn lead to a more comprehensive appreciation of it as a cultural achievement, as an object of scientific inquiry, and as a source of inspiration for future artistic and sustainable design endeavors. It is hoped that by raising awareness of the value and scope of this unique cultural practice, The Living Root Bridge Project will aid in its preservation.
