The “Bosco Verticale’ is considered the first example of a vertical forest building and was completed by Stefano Boeri in October 2014.
It was constructed in Milano, and the plants found on the building equate to 20,000 m2 of forest and undergrowth, in an urban surface of just 1,500 m2.
The diversity of vegetation allowed the development of a microclimate which is able to absorb C02, produce oxygen and humidity, and protect against noise pollution and radiation.
The plants of the Bosco Verticale change colour depending on the season and the different nature of the aforementioned, thus radically and constantly modifying the façades of the building and its visual impact on the city.
