When Stefano Boeri imagines the future of urban China he sees green, and lots of it. Last week, the Italian architect, famed for his tree-clad Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) skyscraper complex in Milan, unveiled plans for a similar project in the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing. The [project] will be composed of two neighbouring towers coated with 23 species of tree and more than 2,500 cascading shrubs. 'Such a large number of plants, trees and shrubs is contributing to the cleaning of the air . . . absorbing CO2 and producing oxygen,' the architect said. The structures will reportedly house offices, a 247-room luxury hotel, a museum and even a green architecture school, and are currently under construction, set for completion next year. But Boeri now has even bolder plans for China: to create entire 'forest cities' in a country that has become synonymous with environmental degradation and smog.
