Il Bosco Verticale su Huffpost

On Huffpost, an article by Sara Carmignani entitled ‘How greener cities can reduce emissions at the source‘ focuses on the benefits of green spaces in the urban context, citing the Bosco Verticale, a project by Boeri Studio, as an example of a ‘green building’.

Along with policies to promote the implementation of vegetation in the city, slow and sustainable mobility, or Nature-based solutions (NBS), which include, for example, urban agriculture projects, the planning of narrower streets that leave more space for tree planting, projects to preserve habitats for wildlife, and the creation of environments for walking and cycling, the Bosco Verticale is considered as an architectural solution to accommodate trees and planes in a smaller area.

In fact, the Porta Nuova project hosts a total of 800 trees, 15,000 perennials and/or ground cover plants and 5,000 shrubs: vegetation equivalent to that of 30,000 square metres of forest and undergrowth, concentrated on 3,000 square metres of urban area, which not only absorbs CO2 but also helps mitigate the phenomenon of urban heat islands, thus promoting a reduction in the use of energy for air conditioning in buildings.
