Vertical Forest in Milan to be completed in 2014


Although it seems to good to be true, the world’s first vertical forest is real and is located in Milan. Bosco Verticale is Boeri Studio’s answer to the question of how to make cities greener while supporting an ever denser urban population.

Most of the 100 different species of trees and shrubs are in place and you can image how amazing it will be to live in one of the apartments and drink your morning coffee near a tree above the ground.  Completion is expected by late spring/early summer 2014.

“The first example of the Vertical Forest composed of two residential towers of 110 and 76 m height, will be realized in the centre of Milan, on the edge of the Isola neighbourhood, and will host 900 trees (each measuring 3, 6 or 9 meters tall) and over 2000 plants from a wide range of shrubs and floral plants that are distributed in relation to the façade’s position to towards the sun. On flat land, each Vertical forest equals, in amount of trees, an area equal o 7000 m2 of forest. In terms of urban densification the equivalent of an area of single family dwellings of nearly 75.000 m2.”

  2. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.

    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
    Thanks
