Vertical ForestING – is a worldwide trend, generated by the first Vertical Forest built by Boeri Studio in Milan, in 2014. When Stefano Boeri came up with the idea of giving back to nature the space we are taking from it with continuous urban sprawl, he conceived Bosco Verticale as a prototype of the skyscrapers of the future. Today we see that the Future is now. Every day architects all around the world rethink and reinterpret the idea of the Trees in the sky. Each of these attempts is extremely important for the future of architecture and the Future of our planet, because the single thought can have certain impact, but thousands of thoughts can change the world. Slowing down the climate changes, reducing CO2 emissions, making our living sustainable and in harmony with nature.
On this experimental page we aim to collect the various examples of vertical greenery, analyzing and giving them improvement suggestions. But above all, Vertical ForestING is our way to show the impact that Bosco Verticale is having on the city and on the international architectural community, the discussion it elicits between the people and the ways it influences their everyday life.
