Stefano Boeri Architetti won the competition for the redevelopment of Jaarbeursboulevard area in Utrecht with the Hawthorn Tower, part of the project Wonderwoods.
The 90 meters height tower aims to create in the center of Utrecht an advanced experience of cohabitation between city and nature, indeed the Hawthorn Tower will host on its façade almost 10.000 plants of different variety and will be able to absorb around 5,4 tons of CO2.
Al the ground floor, directly connected with the garden on the sixth floor, will be placed the Vertical Forest Hub, a center of documentation and research on urban forestation in cities and Vertical Forests around the world.
Hawthorn Tower designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti, will be a smart building able to dialogue with the surrounding city.
