GLOBAL CITIZEN | VERTICAL FOREST IN THE NETHERLANDS
January 22nd, 2018
Already regarded as one of the Netherlands’ greenest cities, Eindhoven features several prominent parks, beautiful gardens, and a dense network of bicycle paths. Now, a newly-proposed by Stefano Boeri Architetti environmental project may be its most important environmental project yet.
A stunning 19-story Trudo Vertical Forest will house 125 low-income families. More than 5,000 plants will cover the building’s facade and dangled from its unique terraces in a style reminiscent of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
