In an age where harmonious innovation is becoming more celebrated, Milan brings us a vertical forest designed by Stefan Boeri Architects. When complete, the Bosco Verticale will be the greenest building in Milan! Considering Milan is one of Europe’s most populated cities, this is a solid inovation in bringing clean air to the city center while introducing a beautiful design.

Bosco Verticale by Stefan Boeri Architects.

The BioMilano vision promises to incorporate 60 abandoned farms into a greenbelt surrounding the city and as part of this vision the Bosco Verticale finds its way into fruition. The building’s design boasts a stunning green façade planted with dense forest systems to provide a building microclimate and to filter out polluting dust particles. Along with that, the living bio-canopy helps to absorb CO2, oxygenate the air, moderate extreme temperatures and lower noise pollution. Not only is this visually pleasing but it also helps to lower living costs.

In the building, each apartment balcony will feature trees (900 plantings are planned for the two buildings) that will provide shade during  the summer months, only to drop their leaves in winter to allow for winter sunlight. Plant irrigation is provided via a grey-water filtration system. Grey-water is used water that goes down the sink or used in the shower. Additionally, photovoltaic power generation will help provide sustainable power to the building.

This is a forward thinking design and implementation of nature that is not only helping our surrounding environment but also help in bringing us back to harmony and nature.

Before ending off the research on this post I was able to find a progress update. Here are asome images of the building near complete. You can see the freshly planted vegetation which gives us an idea of what things might look like.
