bosco verticale


On April 31st, RaiNews24 dedicates a report to the Bosco Verticale in Milan, a project by Boeri Studio (Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca, Giovanni La Varra), and, more generally, to the relationship between contemporary architecture and gentrification in contemporary cities. The report includes an intervention by Stefano Boeri, as the protagonist of the new face of Milan with both the Bosco Verticale project at Porta Nuova and the Bosconavigli project (currently under construction), with a reflection on the role of buildings in urban regeneration.

While the environmental advantages of the Bosco Verticale, two towers 80 and 112 m high, housing a total of 800 trees (480 first and second size trees, 300 smaller ones), 15,000 perennial and/or ground cover plants and 5,000 shrubs, are undeniable, they also represent a starting point for a debate on a more inclusive and accessible design.

In this context, Trudo Vertical Forest is proposed as a virtuous model, a project by Stefano Boeri Architetti in Eindhoven that rethinks the Vertical Forest model in social housing: designed to accommodate mainly low-income users – such as young professionals and students – the Eindhoven tower houses flats with low rents but high quality housing. The complex vision of “housing” coexistence between man and other species is thus amplified in the project into a dual challenge: the possibility of combining the great challenge of the environmental crisis with the urgent need for affordable housing in contemporary cities.
