Bosco Verticale

Architecture in Porta Garibaldi & Isola

Stefano Boeri’s ‘Vertical Forest’ consists of two high-rise apartment blocks wrapped around with steel-reinforced balconies planted with hundreds of trees and shrubs. The award-winning, sustainable design takes its inspiration from Milan’s historic roof gardens and helps to mitigate pollution, and moderate internal temperatures and noise. The project was so successful that Boeri is now designing a forest city in Liuzhou, China.
