The project Vertical Forest helps to build

In some cities of China in the near future will be built a few skyscrapers, covered with greenery. Inside are the usual offices, restaurants, shopping malls, and other attributes of conventional buildings. But on the outside they will look like a huge green tower. The construction will be implemented in the framework of the project Vertical Forest, which aims not only to decorate the grey of cities, but also to help in cleaning the air.

According to the authors, Vertical Forest, this year will lay the Foundation for building the first two towers — the height of 200 and 108 meters respectively. Both buildings will be a «vertical forest», which is enough to hold 23 species of local flora, including about 900 large trees and thousands of shrubs, climbing plants and flowers. As the developers of the project, all this magnificence will consume about 25 tons of carbon dioxide and produce about 60 pounds of oxygen daily.

To Go into creating such a project «non-traditional» greening of the cities, the Chinese authorities pushed the deficit areas. Therefore, despite the high cost of construction, in the future, this approach will pay off not only financially, but also from the health of local residents. In addition, now there are many who want to acquire a personal forest at high altitude. For funding the project Vertical Forest meets the state Corporation Nanjing Yang Zi, whose representatives argue that the completion of construction and commissioning should occur in 2018. The first two skyscrapers will be built in Nanjing, and in the management of the company also include greening in this way Shijiazhuang city, Guizhou, Shanghai and Chongqing.
