vertical forests

Vertical Forests Italian architect Stefano Boeri has just announced a new design for vertical forests in China. The city of Nanjing unveiled the ‘Nanjing Vertical Forest’ this week, a mixed-use development commissioned by the National Investment Group. The project will provide high density housing and office space while contributing to the environment in a positive manner.

Boeri describes the project as “a real vertical forest that will help to regenerate local biodiversity, will provide a 25 tons of CO2 absorption each year and will produce about 60 kilograms of oxygen per day”. The two towers will be covered with 600 tall trees and 500 medium-sized trees among a total of 1,110 trees coming from local species. 2,500 cascading plants and shrubs will also trail down the buildings. Boeri has also designed similar projects in Switzerland and Milan.Vertical Forests
