Increasing urbanization seems to be a given. Not all cities have the luxury of a Central Park (New York city). So how can the increasingly populated cities of the world be given a breath of fresh air. Enter 'Vertical forests' - high-rise buildings covered with trees and plants - they absorb carbon dioxide, filter dust from pollution and produce oxygen. They're also an ingenious way of planting more trees and creating habitats for wildlife in cities that are squeezed for space. China, a nation experiencing rocketing urban growth and an air pollution crisis, is set to get its first vertical forest. The project in the eastern city of Nanjing is the brainchild of the Italian architect Stefano Boeri and his team, who built Milan's Bosco Verticale (vertical forest), consisting of two residential high-rises at 110 and 76 meters with around 900 trees and over 20,000 smaller plants and shrubs. Visualization of this spectacle and more here.
