These magnificent edifices, designed by architect Stefano Boeri, are currently being built in Milan. Each tower will be planted with 900 trees (each measuring 3, 6 or 9 metres tall) as well as a wide range of shrubs and floral plants. Each Bosco Verticale is equivalent to a land area of 10.000 square metres of forest. The towers provide a green lung for the city and let’s hope that they are extremely successful and that the idea for green cities is taken up around the world. The ‘Hanging Gardens of Babylon’ for the 21st century!
Until next time
