Love this type of design incorporating the nature back into an architecture. Ive seen a very similar design done by our rendering team, and I always wanted to visit the location.

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.

It's really debatable whether it's sustainable, though. Trees weigh a lot, so a tower outfitted with trees like that needs a beefier support structure to carry the load, which means more concrete. I can't remember the source, but I read somewhere that the extra concrete will cause carbon emissions that exceeds the benefit of the trees by quite a wide margin. Not to mention they are planted pretty high up in very small soil beds, so the wind will dry the trees out quickly unless they are watered very often, causing water consumption to skyrocket. It would probably be better to plant the trees around the building than directly on it.
