In an age where harmonious innovation is becoming more celebrated, Milan brings us a vertical forest designed by Stefan Boeri Architects. When complete, the Bosco Verticale will be the greenest building in Milan! Considering Milan is one of Europe’s most populated cities, this is a solid innovation in bringing clean air to the city center while introducing a beautiful design.

But Id hate to be the gardener there. Or the poor person who has to sweep the leaves up every autumn!

Interesting, at least kids would know what a tree look like but I would have to agree it would make the apartment dark and gloomy.
