The two towers, currently under construction in Milan, Italy, are incorporating a hectare of forest on the building’s terraces. With the addition of 480 big and medium sized trees, 250 small size trees, 11,000 groundcover plants and 5,000 shrubs, this sky-high ecosystem will filter out dust from the air, absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygenated air into the atmosphere and living quarters, while also providing shade and a micro-climate that cools the air in hot summer months.
Wouldn’t this be an amazing place to live?
