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.
