bosco verticale su Twist

On the European cultural channel ‘art’, the programme Twist aired an episode entitled Will artificial intelligence soon build our homes?, in which Boeri Studio’s Bosco Verticale is featured as an example of a new way of building.

The Bosco Verticale is in fact the first building-prototype of a new architecture of biodiversity, which no longer places man alone at the centre, but the relationship between man and other living species. The concept of the Bosco Verticale, i.e. “a house for trees that also houses humans and birds”, defines not only the urban and technological characteristics but also the architectural language and expressive qualities of the project.

From the irrigation and maintenance system to the structural design of the potting system, from insurance issues to the plants’ resistance to wind: everything in the Bosco Verticale has been taken into consideration, for the first time in architecture, in order to guarantee the best possible growing conditions for greenery, treating it as a real project material. So, on the one hand, the global vocation, the ability to provide a concrete response to some of today’s most critical issues (the lack of greenery in the city, air pollution, the growing sprawl that fragments the city…) and, on the other hand, the strength of the vision, I believe, are factors that have contributed to making the Bosco Verticale an icon of Milan and a symbol of contemporary architecture.
