Bosco Verticale, Milan by Stefan Boeri

‘Bosco Verticale’, Milan

I was expecting my day to be all about sport – Wimbledon and the World Cup – but my first ‘wow’ moment of the day came from Elle Decoration and an article about Stefan Boeri’s ‘Bosco Verticale’ in Milan – the Vertical Forest.  Stunning.

Do take a look at Dezeen’s article on this: Stefan Boeri’s Vertical Forest – with more great photographs as well as narrative – and below is a TED video of Sefan Boeri taking about this project.

Along with vertical gardens, projects such as this look likely to transform the landscapes of our cities from ugly concrete jungles to dynamic living city environments – so much better for all of us, the planet included.  Thrilling stuff.
