Solar powered Bosco Verticale sports 10,000 square meters of greenery
Blending together architecture and greenery, Italian architectural firm Stefano Boeri Architetti seem to have perfected the vertical garden design. Called the Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) project, this solar powered structure by the Milan-based firm could be the answer to the green additions required in our urban spaces today. In cities growing vertically, spaces for green spots are rare and difficult to find. However, building vertical green areas could help save space and better the ecosystem in cities. The two residential Vertical Forest towers planned stand 110 and 76 meters respectively and will be home to more than 900 trees and will also include shrubs and floral plants! In all, these towers with 10,000 square meters of green will help produce humidity, absorb CO2 and dust particles, and produce oxygen with a budget of $87.5 million.
