Stefano Boeri Architetti designed the Vertical Forest in Milan followed by the Nanjing Vertical Forest. The idea of the architect Stefano Boeri is to design an entire Forest City, the first concept was proposed for the city Shijiazhuang and the next one in construction is Liuzhou Forest City.
The scheme of Liuzhou Forest City provides sustainable high-density housing and office space packed heavily with greenery, as a way to depollute the surrounding environment by filtering dust particles from the air and absorbing CO2. Other benefits include reducing air temperature, providing noise barriers to busy traffic areas and creating homes for small animals helping the grew of biodiversity.
