Stefano Boeri created the Vertical Forest in Milan, but he has an even more ambitious idea, the Forest City. His dream is becoming reality with the project Liuzhou Forest City, located in Liuzhou, China.
The concept is to challenge preconceptions that urban density intensifies air pollution, by creating a new blueprint for city design that integrates plants into its construction. Liuzhou Forest City will absorb CO2 and pollutants, creating oxygen, but also contribute in the thermoregulation of internal-external spaces. The city will be energy self-sufficient thanks to renewable sources and geothermal energy.
