Stefano Boeri Architetti won the competition for the construction of the first Vertical Forest in the Netherlands. Set to rise in Utrecht, the Hawthorn Tower will, like its Milanese predecessor Vertical Forest, be blanketed in greenery with the ability to absorb CO2 and produce oxygen.
Slated to begin construction in 2019 with a building designed by the studio MVSA Architects of Amsterdam, the Hawthorn Tower will infuse greenery into the heart of Jaarbeursboulevard area close to Utrecht Station. The 90 meters in height tower designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti attempts to create, in the dutch city center, an innovative experience of cohabitation between city and nature.
