Basking in the north Italian sun the towers, called the Bosco Verticale, are under construction in the city of Milan - and the plants are being grown in pots while their new home is being prepared.
Director of Boeri Studios, Michele Brunello said, “The idea for a vertical forest came when we were involved in a local tree planting project… we imagined a building that allowed the landscape to enter it. By creating a tower that truly becomes a home for the landscape we have a powerful tool. It's very different from anything that has come before.’
Bosco Verticale will be home to a variety of plant life which planners hope will act as a filter to pollution from traffic, shade people from the Mediterranean sun and will change its appearance each season - with new plants coming alive at spring time and rich colours being displayed during autumn. The plants have been tested in wind tunnels and picked to be suitable for the height and the chosen side of the building.’
Here at Farsight, our workers are our powerful tools. Like the plants, we pick the workers best suited to your projects. If you speak to our clients you’ll hear that our service is very different from the other agencies. We ensure that all our workers are twice referenced, CSCS checked and fully interviewed. By doing this we ensure that we send you the very best of our labour and trades.
