“I believe in architecture that isn’t limited by solving nowadays problems, but that rather decodes the evolution of them, proposing advanced and smart answers, even if in discontinuity with the context.” (Stefano Boeri)
In its first number Forbes proposes an interview with the architect Stefano Boeri, talking about the challenge of the first Forest City and contemporary trends of living.
A system of small green cities, representing a new city model sensitive to the climate change, will be realized in Liuzhou, near Shanghai. The growth of green surfaces in the city is one of the most efficient actions to tackle pollution and CO 2 emissions phenomena, and China is the best place to host this new solution experimentation.
So the model of green buildings is continuously evolving and so constantly improving with the Research. Considering the green an essential living part, its maintenance becomes sustainable and more accessible. In fact, the first Vertical Forest for social housing will soon be built in Eindhoven.
So architecture becomes the ability of understanding future needs and interpreting them in a creative and sustainable way.
“..I dream about a future where forests and cities merge and where living species cohabit. A city where the differences face each other and even collide, but always respect the ecosystem we all belong to”.
