In today’s world, plants and trees can intermix with architecture to build exceptional inspirational buildings. The buildings in Milan, Italy, is a nice example. The Bosco Verticale, Italian for “Vertical Forest”, contains two towers, 80 and 112 meters tall.
Designed based on sustainable energy structure, the outer parts of the buildings are wrapped in plants and trees.
The architect of the gorgeous building, Stefano Boeri, said the simple design allows an outlook of plants in a small residential place. One resident said, the plants in terraces have a great influence on the quality of life. The temperature goes down in summertime thanks to plants existence. Also, in winter, the greenhouse effect helps us use less heat.
Michael Green Architecture (MGA), in Vancouver, focuses on mixing timber in its style. In Minnesota’s T3 Minneapolis, for instance, 1,100 boards of “nail-laminated timber” are used which are from trees destroyed by pine beetles.
