Bosco Verticale


A new biodiversity architecture that houses trees, humans, and birds

Take a stroll around Milan’s Centro Direzionale, at the edge of the Isola district, to admire the most famous symbol of green urban development. This Vertical Forest was designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti, and has become an icon for the concept of urban reforestation.

It also hosts Milan’s challenge to climate change, where you’ll see more than 15,000 plants and over 90 different species of trees, shrubs and floral vegetation, the equivalent of a 3-hectare forest capable of absorbing 30 tons of carbon dioxide every year.

And as the seasons come and go, the variations in color and shape of the plant structure generate a large, constantly changing landmark, recognizable even from a distance. In just a few, short years this feature has turned the image of the Vertical Forest into a new icon for Milan.
