One of Milan’s Vertical Forests
Bosco Verticale, Milan, December 2019
These vertical forests, designed by Stefano Boeri, opened in Milan in 2014. A few years on and the forests are thriving. In fact, there were some vertigo-immune gardeners hanging from ropes and pruning the greenery, when I visited in late 2019.
The two towers of greenery stand 116m and 85m high, and are hosts to 700 trees, over 20,000 different shrubs and plants, and bees, overflies and birds.
