The World’s First Vertical Forest

singularitarian:

Last Autumn, websites like Inhabitat and TreeHugger reported about Stefano Boeri’s plans for a stunning vertical urban forest in Milan. A great and definitely inspiring idea! But don’t we often see these kinds of urban fantasies that never leave the drawing board? Not this time — construction has already started. This Big City has posted pictures of the first frameworks. That makes the project even more interesting, as we never before witnessed the building of a vertical forest. The Bosco Verticale will cost some 6 million euros. In fact the tower does not only accommodate trees, but also luxury apartments. Each apartment has a balcony designed to hold approximately 900 small trees and plants, making the facade look like an impressive forest.

I hope more of this “making the future happen”-ing… happens…
