"Vertical forests", the new trend in sustainable architecture


Contemporary architecture is increasingly connected with nature, showing us new projects that incorporate more green areas, natural walls and different elements that contribute to the well-being of its inhabitants.

In Milan, Italy, a studio made up of professionals Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra, built a housing complex with two towers, one 76 (19 stories) tall and the other 110 (27 stories) high. The particularity of these buildings is that at all levels it incorporates plants, shrubs and flowers as a sustainable solution to maintain the temperature without the need for sophisticated technologies.

According to the authors, the extensive presence of vegetation contributes to creating its own microclimate, capable of producing hydrogen and oxygen, it also behaves like a solar filter and contributes to lower climate conditioning by at least two degrees. In turn, it is a potential habitat for birds and insects, with which it can contribute to repopulate urban flora and fauna, explains Clarín.

Each building is equivalent to an area of ​​seven thousand square meters of horizontal forest, and “promotes a new vertical ecosystem”.
