Vertical Forest

Vertical Forest

Stafano Boeri has created a new architectonic model called the “bosco verticale” (vertical forest) that distributes the benefi ts of greenery upwards through two towers 110 and 76 meters high whose facades are completely surrounded and covered in trees of various type and size, fl owering shrubs and bushes.

The two Vertical Forest towers represent a new strategy aimed at reducing the “mineralisation” of the urban area and their partial re-colonisation by nature. Besides producing a cleaner urban environment, the two towers also provide a substantial increase in biodiversity, thanks to the use of living and biologically active elements in conjunction with the large landscaped park beneath. The strategy also offers signifi cant climatic/environmental benefi ts (reducing the heat island effect), as well as producing a more visually pleasing and psychologically satisfying urban habitat.
