First Vertical Forest Towers in Asia to Produce Oxygen!


The latest project of architect Stefano Boeri, who transforms the concept of green architecture into a real building, continues to rise in Nanjing. These ornamental towers, which we saw on Boredpanda, will be completed next year and the city will produce plenty of oxygen.


The first vertical forest in Nanjing, China will turn CO2 into 132 pounds of oxygen per day.

They’re called the Nanjing Towers, and once they’re completed in 2018 they’ll be Asia’s first ever vertical forests.

Designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri, each tower will stand 656 feet and 558 feet tall respectively.

Between them, they’ll house over 1,000 trees and approximately 2,500 shrubs from 23 different local species.

The taller tower will contain offices, a museum, a green architecture school, and a rooftop club. While the smaller tower will house a rooftop pool and a 247-room Hyatt hotel.

Balconies will afford visitors stunning views of the dizzying vertical forests that are intended to help regenerate local biodiversity.

However, these aren’t the first vertical forests that Stefano has designed. Two have already been built in Milan.

Similar buildings have been planned for Lausanne, Switzerland.

In an increasingly polluted world, these green designs are a real breath of fresh air.

We hope that there'll be more architects like Stefano Boeri helping the environment.
