Francis Hallé is a French botanist, biologist and illustrator, whose research is focused on tropical forests and tree architecture.
Together with his contemporaries, Hallé developed a catalogue of twenty-two architectural models of trees, defining a foundational rule-based system by which trees can be understood. For architects and landscape architects, this is a critical development in expanding our potential of designing with trees.
