Stefano Boeri Architetti is moving on with the realization of its Urban Forestry project. After Milan, Nanjing, Utrecht, Lausanne and Paris, Bosco Verticale also arrives in Eindhoven, but with a fundamental difference: it will be destined to social housing, then turned to a popular user and in particular to young couples.
Each of the 125 units will have a floor area of less than 50 square meters and a terrace of 4 square meters that will have 1 tree and 20 bushes of the most varied species. The façades will therefore host a total of 125 trees and 5,200 among shrubs and plants. This will create, within the metropolitan environment, a green habitat for the development of biodiversity, a real ecosystem with over 70 different plant species able to combat air pollution (it will be able to absorb over 50 tons of carbon dioxide per year).
