Trudo Vertical Forest su Smart Building Italia

The Smart Building Italia website dedicates an article to the Trudo Vertical Forest project, designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti in the city of Eindhoven.

Designed to accommodate mainly low-income users – such as young professionals and students – the Eindhoven tower houses flats with low rents but high living quality. The complex vision of “living” coexistence between humans 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.

The Trudo Vertical Forest, part of the urban renewal plan for ‘Strijp-S’ – a recovery and development plan involving the area formerly belonging to the Philips electronics company, a decisive identity presence in the area, once completely closed to the city but now becoming a new creative hub in Eindhoven – generates a new green habitat for the development of biodiversity within the metropolitan environment, a true ecosystem nourished by the coexistence of more than 70 different plant species, capable of combating atmospheric pollution, absorbing CO2 and fine dust particles, developing the model first experimented in Milan and now in Holland into an expression of a new design paradigm, in which vegetation and living nature are considered as constituent – and no longer merely ornamental – elements of architectural language.
