The project is selected as the best because it impressively includes 14 000 plants in the concrete blocks. The highrises are an ideal solution for the cities of the future.Boeri_Bosco_Verticale1_full © Paolo Rosselli

“The Vertical Forest is an expression of the human need for contact with nature. It is a radical and daring idea for the cities of tomorrow, and without a doubt represents a model for the development of densely populated urban areas in other European countries” emphasized the jury president Christoph Ingenhoven.residenze_bosco_home_01

“The Vertical Forest represents a new approach to the highrise building, where trees and humans share their living space. It is the first example worldwide of a tower that enhances the hosting city with plant and fauna biodiversity. I am happy for both Milan and Expo, and for the Italian culture,” said Stefano Boeri, architect and founder of Boeri Studio.
