The Manual, an online media dedicated to sharing interesting and informative experiences of lifestyle, introduces the first Vertical Forest social housing project designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti.
Trudo Vertical Forest will be a low-cost apartment building with 125 units over 19 floors, in order to house low-income social groups, particularly young people and couples. Each apartment balcony is filled with trees, plants and shrubs, turning affordable housing into a living Vertical Forest. More than 5,200 shrubs and 125 trees will be planted with the goal of counteracting pollution by absorbing carbon dioxide and facilitating biodiversity through building an ecosystem with over 70 different plant species.
