I live behind this tall green palace, and I get fascinated by it every time. Vertical Forest is a model for a sustainable residential building, a project for a metropolitan reforestation that contributes to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity without the consequences of city expansion.
I like having a walk under these two big buildings because the area is a high expression of the contrasts of the new Milano: the skyscrapers mixing with the old ringhiera houses typical of the past.
The buildings are also a model of the vertical densification of nature within the city and complies to policies for the reforestation and naturalisation of large urban and metropolitan areas. The buildings were designed by Stefano Boeri, one of the best architects of the moment.
I love having a romantic date under these buildings, where there is a garden with some benches. Also it is in Isola, one of the coolest neighborhood of the new Milano, full of characteristic locals and beautiful spots.
