The Milan edition of Il Corriere della Sera publishes an article on its cover focusing on the beginning of spring and its consequences on the city’s living nature, with new blooms and colours, mentioning the Bosco Verticale, a project by Boeri Studio (Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca, Giovanni La Varra).
The Porta Nuova area, in fact, is the focus of the article, thanks to the essences present in the Library of Trees and the 800 trees, 15,000 plants and 5,000 shrubs housed on the facades of the Bosco Verticale.
In the various seasons, in fact, the variations in colour and shape of the vegetal structure of the two Milanese towers generate an iridescent landmark, strongly recognisable even from a distance. This principle of variation also acts in relation to the different treatments on the sides of the towers and on the various floors, where the choice and distribution of the essences reflect both seasonal and functional criteria, linked to adaptation to the orientations and heights of the façades. The result of three years of studies conducted together with a group of botanists and ethologists, the development of the plant component preceded the building life of the complex itself. Starting in the summer of 2010, the plants destined to be planted on the towers were in fact pre-cultivated in a special botanical “nursery””, in order to accustom them to living in conditions similar to the final ones.
