China’s first vertical forest is rising in Nanjing

.

Stefano Boeri Architetti is bringing the concept of a vertical forest popularized in Milan to China with the Nanjing Green Towers. The two green towers could provide Nanjing, China with a breath of fresh air, producing around 132 pounds of oxygen every day as they absorb carbon dioxide. They’ll accomplish this air cleaning feat with 1,100 flourishing trees from 23 local species and 2,500 cascading shrubs and plants as they comprise Asia’s first vertical forest.

The house is clad in pine wood painted black to help the home blend into the forest, topped with a tin roof, and raised on stilts so as not to interrupt the flow of water in winter.
