Asia’s First-Ever Vertical Forest Will Produce 132 Pounds Of Oxygen Each Day
In Nanjing, China, there are two towers unlike any other in the world that will soon clean the air and make way for the future with 1,100 trees and 2,500 shrubs and plants.
Stefano Boeri Architetti first presented the idea of installing a vertical forest in Milan and people of all over were fascinated and thrilled. With all the positivity from the Milan project he decided to do the same in Nanjing, China.
The two towers which overlook the Nanjing Pukou District will be completed by the end of 2018. Overflowing with 1,100 trees from 23 local species, as well as 2,500 cascading shrubs and plants, the installation will clean the city’s air by producing 132 pounds of oxygen every day. The taller tower (656 feet) will hold offices, a museum, a green architecture school, and a rooftop club. And in the second tower (354 feet), a 247-room Hyatt hotel will be found, complete with a rooftop swimming pool. Shops, restaurants, and a conference hall will also be included in the second building in a podium that will rise 65 feet.
