These houses are fascinating with their beauty and unusualness. Every day, one such “vertical forest” produces 60 kg of pure oxygen.
The Chinese nicknamed them – “Nanjing towers”. Construction of the first line of such skyscrapers will be completed in 2018.
Specialists say that such houses for Asian cities are the only way to prevent an ecological catastrophe.
The first “green” towers Bosco Verticale were built in Milan, in 2014. The author of the project is the architect Stefano Boeri. An unusual idea was interesting for many countries, and people decided to engage in the development of the project.
At the end of 2015, the architect presented a skyscraper project for the city of Lausanne in Switzerland. Now the turn of China has come, where the first “Vertical Forest” in Asia will be built.
According to the project “Vertical Forest” Stefano Boeri in China will consist of two towers, the facades of which will consist of natural greenery. One of the projected skyscrapers will reach a height of 200 meters. The highlight of the main high-rise project will be a dome of dense green vegetation, under which the club will be located.
Floors from the eighth to the thirty-fifth will be allocated for offices, a museum and a school of “green architecture”. The second tower will be home to the new Hyatt hotel, commercial premises, entertainment and educational facilities.
On the towers of the Chinese “Vertical Forest”, in total, it’s planed to plant 1110 trees of native species in combination with 2500 shrubs. The project is planned to be completed in 2018. The construction site is the Pukou district of the Nanjing megacity of Jiangsu Province, China.
Local authorities believe that the “green” towers will help restore local biodiversity. They will absorb 35 tons of CO2 per year.
