RADICAL DESIGN [ARTEFACT 2]
A FOREST CITY
Stefano Boeri: Vertical Forest (2017)
Based in Liuzhou, China, the architect designed this monumental forest city to feature over 40,000 trees and over a million shrubs/ plants/ flowers to battle pollution caused by urban environments. This concept mainly consists of high-density residential zones which could house over 30,000 people and still have access to transport, access to the main city and live in an oxygen-rich environment.
This particular project is inspiring due to the sheer amount of work it would contribute back to the environment, tackling one of the main problems with urban cities: air pollution.
