The Dutch magazine Het Weer publishes an article titled “Growing Green Cities” mentioning the projects of the Bosco Verticale in Milan, designed by Boeri Studio, and the Wonderwoods Vertical Forest by Stefano Boeri Architetti, currently under construction in Utrecht, as virtuous examples of this approach.

The article focuses on the benefits of greenery in urban environments, both in terms of shading and the absorption of fine particles, as well as the psychological benefits. It also presents a study by the consultancy firm Sweco, which suggests that approximately 200 km2 of green urban landscapes are needed to protect city dwellers in the Netherlands from heat and drought.

Stefano Boeri Architetti’s green projects are moving in this direction. In the Netherlands, they have already completed the Trudo Vertical Forest in Eindhoven in 2021, the first example of a vertical forest entirely dedicated to social housing, and are about to complete the Wonderwoods Vertical Forest in Utrecht. Designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti and MVSA Architects, the Wonderwoods project aims to create an advanced experience of cohabitation between the city and living nature in the city center, as part of the new Healthy Urban Quarter. The intervention is part of a new variation of the Vertical Forest, standing at 105 meters high and capable of accommodating approximately 200 apartments of various types for different users: mainly young professionals, manual workers, and families. The tower facades will host around 50,000 plants of 30 different species, equivalent to a hectare of forest vegetation, resulting in a genuine urban ecosystem capable of producing approximately 41 tons of oxygen each year.
