Milan’s Vertical Forest
One of Europe’s most polluted cities is about to become the home of an impressive vertical forest. The project (called Bosco Verticale) is already underway and consists of two skyscrapers which will be home to 900 trees and a large variety of shrubs and other plants. Each building will have the same number of trees as over 100,000 square feet of forest! Not only will they incorporate nature into an urban environment, but they’re also beneficial for filtering dust particles, absorbing carbon dioxide, and creating oxygen and humidity.
