‘Vertical forest’ towers are coming to China
China is taking green living to new heights, with the construction of two ‘vertical forest’ towers.
They will be built in Nanjing and contain hundreds of trees, plants and shrubs along the facades that will help tackle increasing carbon dioxide levels.
Six hundred tall trees, 500 medium-sized trees and 2,500 cascading plants and shrubs will cover a 65,000-square-foot area on the buildings, called Nanjing Green Towers.
It’s expected that the greenery will provide 25 tons of CO2 absorption each year and will produce about 60kg of oxygen per day.
The taller tower, 600 feet high, crowned on the top by a green lantern, will host offices – from the 8th floor to the 35th – and it will include a museum, a green architecture school and a private club on the rooftop
The Nanjing towers, due to be completed in 2018, will be the first vertical forests in Asia
