Asia’s first vertical forest planned in Nanjing

Designed to absorb 25 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year and produce about 60 kg of oxygen per day, the vertical forest being planted in Nanjing, eastern China, is a move against nature-deprived urban development.

In an article published in the South China Morning Post, Italian architect Stefano Boeri, known for amongst other things the vertical forest in Milano, talks about his concept of metropolitan reforestation and the Nanjing-project.

The Nanjing project will be the third of Boeri’s vertical forest prototypes – after Milano and Eindhoven in the Netherlands (a social housing project due for completion in July 2019) – and the first for Asia.
