The BBC news site, in its section The Collection – Interiors, devotes an article to the world of plants, especially furniture plants, and how they improve the quality of life, citing the Bosco Verticale project, designed by Boeri Studio (Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca, Giovanni La Varra), as a virtuous example of integrating vegetation into architecture.

The article focuses on the role of houseplants, which are becoming increasingly important, equal to that of furniture, and vegetation in architecture in general, how it helps improve the microclimate of apartments, reduce heat, absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.

From succulents, to terrariums, flowers and plants are analyzed for both their aesthetic and health benefits, also describing how the idea of climbing plants and trees growing on the walls of buildings, made famous by the Bosco Verticale, has caught on in interiors as well, offering a more original alternative to wallpapers and art, called “living art” by Carter.
In fact, the two towers in Milan collectively host 800 trees, 15,000 perennials and/or ground cover plants and 5,000 shrubs. A vegetation equivalent to that of 30,000 square meters of forest and undergrowth, concentrated on 3,000 square meters of urban area.
