Vertical Forest by Stefano Boeri
Vertical Forest in Milan is one of twenty winners of the prestigious Award of Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) 2018 for International Excellence. Twenty new buildings in 16 countries selected by RIBA range from large urban infrastructure schemes to private homes; cultural destinations to civic spaces; educational buildings to places of worship.
Here’s the motivation of Jury for choosing Vertical Forest (Boeri Studio): “Combining biodiversity with bustling urban life and creating its own micro-climate in the process, Bosco Verticale deals with density and air quality and in doing so creates an architectural botany that is both compelling and striking”.
