Iarch.cn highlights the Trudo Vertical Forest designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti which will be the first model of foliage-filled towers for social housing. The project aims to provide 125 apartments which will be rented out at affordable rates and made available to low-income social groups, particularly young people and couples. The green skyscraper will host 125 trees and 5,200 shrubs and plants, becoming an ecosystem with over 70 different plant species capable of combating atmospheric pollution.
The Trudo Vertical Forest confirms the possibility of combining the great challenges of climate change with those of housing shortages. “Urban Forestry is not only necessary to improve the environment of the world’s cities but also an opportunity to improve the living conditions of less fortunate city dwellers”, declares Stefano Boeri.
