‘Vertical Forest’ architecture improves the urban environment

The vertical forest is a design for “metropolitan reforestation” by Boeri Studio’s architects, Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca, and Giovanni La Varra. Sited for Milan, Italy which has high air pollution, the planted greenery will help to support the area’s environment. However, in addition to supporting the city, the vertical forest also creates a microclimate within the building, providing better air quality for the interior spaces.

Boeri explains, “The diversity of the plants and their characteristics produce humidity, absorb CO2 and dust particles, producing oxygen and protect from radiation and acoustic pollution, improving the quality of living spaces and saving energy.” In addition to air quality, the irrigation of the plant-life is efficiently engineered using greywater which is recycled waste-water from sinks and other sources.
