DEZEEN | STEFANO BOERI PROPOSES TREES INSTEAD OF BARRIERS

August 25th, 2017

Following the recent terror attacks in Barcelona, Italian architect Stefano Boeri has suggested that European cities be redesigned to include trees with bulky planters rather than concrete barriers to prevent vehicles targeting pedestrians.
“We cannot afford to see the thousands of squares and public spaces present in the hundreds of European cities transformed into war check-points, knowing that only one derisory percentage of these thousands of squares will be really hit from terrorist attacks. Instead of using barriers that worsen the quality of space we should think about the quality of space, we should think about trees with planters that are functional” Stefano Boeri told Dezeen.
