Can't wait to see the final product, and also the taller second phase. It is an absolute masterpiece.
I'm also curious about what seems to be some older brick buildings near the middle of the site.

The first example of the Vertical Forest composed of two residential towers in Milan, host 900 trees (each measuring 3, 6 or 9 meters tall) and over 2,000 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 7,000 sqm of forest. In terms of urban densification the equivalent of an area of single family dwellings of nearly 75,000 sqm. The vegetal system of the Vertical Forest aids in the construction of a microclimate, produces humidity, absorbs CO2 and dust particles and produces oxygen.

This is great. Even on the top floor you see some vegetation out your window. It gives a bit of shade from the glare of rising or setting sun, and creates better perspective, and natural framing, between you and the distant views. I bet people who live in these buildings feel better and are more relaxed maybe without even realizing why.

Yep, this is an interesting project. The towers have also become a sort of attraction, it's easy to see tourists take a pic


Now the architect is designing something like this for some Chinese cities and not only.

Very interesting thread! It is very closely related to the PhD I'm doing, which is about risk assessment of green roof solutions (basically, what could possibly go wrong with creating a meadow on top of your building, and how would it impact the building in the long run?). I'll follow the thread closely for more projects to check out and solutions/approaches to examine.

Although, could I plead a mod to merge it with this thread? They seem to cover the exact same kind of buildings. Alternately, lay down some clearer rules on what kinds of architecture go in which thread.
