world’s first vertical forest – Bosco Verticale

Designed by Stefano Boeri- architect, academic and former editor of design and architecture magazine Domus – his Bosco Verticaleis a towering 27-story structure, currently under construction in Milan, Italy.

Once complete, the tower will be home to the world’s first vertical forest.

In summer, oaks and amelanchiers will shade the windows and filter the city’s dust; in winter, sunlight will shrine through the bare branches.
