Asia’s First Vertical Forest to be made by China

The movie 2012 had a scene in which they show a huge-ass ship with the ability to save a significant part of the human race. On seeing that, the American general says, ‘Only the Chinese can build something like this’. That’s the reputation China has. And it has lived up to that reputation yet again. China is building Asia’s first vertical forest. The project is called ‘The Nanjing Towers’ and it is expected to produce 60 kg oxygen every single day.
These towers will be built in the Nanjing city and are aimed to tackle the alarming Carbon Dioxide levels. The quality of Oxygen will be 3000 times purer than the one we usually breathe. The Nanjing Towers will have approximately 1,100 trees that cover 23 local species and can cover a plantable area of 60,000 square feet. 25 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide absorption is what these towers are expected to give to the city. Italian architect Stefano Boeri is the genius who will design this marvel. The towers will stand at a magnificent height of 656 feet and 354 feet.

Stefano has already designed two such towers in his own country in the city of Milan. They are called The Bosco Verticale and he is planning to open one up in Switzerland. Out of the two towers that are planned for China, the taller one will have offices, a museum, an open terrace club and an architectural school. The smaller one will have a Hyatt hotel with 247 rooms.


These towers are expected to be ready by 2018 and this effort by China is a good example of giving something back to the environment.
