This quick fly-through by the Stefano Boeri Architects shows the lush vegetation of the Bosco Verticale, the vertical forest, in Milan, Italy. Mind you these are not CG renderings but the real deal. There are altogether 900 trees of over 90 species and over 20 000 plants in the two buildings. The plants and trees are taken care of by a single company. There’s also an interesting video showing how every 4 months these wall climbing botanists descend over the building and take care of the plants.
The Parking Thicket is a movable mini forest built into a used car. The Thicket has a diverse selection of local plants and features also a small pond. The frame of the car is stripped down and reinforced to withstand the load of the soil, water and the plants. The Thicket can easily be towed to any area with a parking space. A touch of wild nature to the concrete & asphalt city!
