What is it?
Bosco Verticale (vertical forest) will be the first forest in the sky. It is a living space and garden. The creators wants to make a connection between the nature and the city.
The first example of a Bosco Verticale, composed of two residential towers of 110 and 76 meters height, will be realized in the centre of Milan. It will host 900 trees and a wide range of shrubs and floral plants. The plants are being grown in pots while their new home is being prepared. Because the trees are a propertie of the building, people who live in these buildings don’t have to water and take care of them.
Why is it cool?
Now a day a lot of people wants to live in cities, urbanisation. Because of this we have to bring the nature to the cities. With the Bosco Verticale you will find fresh air, rest while working, living or even just by seeing the tower. It filters the dust particles contained in the urban environment. The Bosco Verticale is a example for sustainable living and future-proof element wit its self-sustaining system.
