IL GIORNO | OAKS ARE BETTER THAN THE NEW JERSEY

August 21st, 2017

“Terrorists want to lock us in our homes, hoping to force us to give up living in collective and public spaces of our cities. Well, I believe that their desperate madness should also be answered with an accurate use of the beauty of nature and its symbolic value. Instead of distorting the most vital and open spaces of our cities by filling them with concrete barriers and modular plastic security devices, we should oppose the instinct of deaths of those human beasts with the calm presence of plants, and in particular the oaks” said the architect Stefano Boeri, who proposed the Anti-terror Forest: large repositionable vases that can accommodate trees, protect public spaces and enhance our cities.
