The Vertical Forest by Stefano Boeri is a model of sustainable residential building, a project of metropolitan reforestation that contributes to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity without expanding the city on the territory. The need to make trees an “essential component of architecture”, in particular a weapon to combat climate change, is one of the key points of Stefano Boeri‘s vision. The Vertical Forest mitigation action helps to build a microclimate and filter the fine dust of the urban atmosphere. The variety of plants helps to create moisture and absorb CO2 and dust, produce oxygen, protect people and homes from sunlight and noise pollution.
This model of innovative building will rise in other places all over the world.
