In Milan, Italy, architects are tackling the problems of the concrete jungle by building a vertical forest in the city.

Called ‘Bosco Verticale’ (Vertical Forest), the vertical forest will host of 900 trees, 5,000 bushes and 11,000 plants—span across the balconies of two residential towers 110 and 76 meters high, in the center of Milan.

Boeristudio architects (Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca, and Giovanni La Varra) believe that the Bosco Vertical will help produce oxygen and humidity, absorb CO2 and dust particles, and reduce noise pollution.
