The Green Style website, focused on news related to environmental sustainability, publishes an article titled “Green Building: 5 Famous Green Building Projects Worldwide,” featuring the Bosco Verticale in Milan designed by Boeri Studio.
The article focuses on green building projects that aim to combine architecture and environment, citing five international examples of sustainable construction that have crossed borders to become true best practices in sustainable development.
Alongside Singapore’s Robinson Tower, Melbourne’s Pixel Building, Vancouver’s Convention Centre West, and Shanghai’s Shanghai Tower, the Bosco Verticale in Milan is presented as the only Italian example of integration between living nature and architecture.
Ten years after their construction in 2014, the two towers of Porta Nuova remain a reference point for a new architectural paradigm that places not only humans at the center but also the relationship between humans and other living species. The two towers, standing at 80 and 112 meters, collectively house 800 trees (480 of varying sizes, 300 smaller ones), 15,000 perennial and/or ground-cover plants, and 5,000 shrubs. The vegetation is equivalent to that of 30,000 square meters of forest and undergrowth, concentrated on a 3,000-square-meter urban surface. The project is also a device for limiting the sprawl of cities brought about through a quest for greenery (each tower is equivalent to about 50,000 square metres of single-family houses).
