Asia’s First Vertical Forest Produces 132 Pounds of Oxygen Everyday

The first vertical forest in Asia is being developed in Nanjing, China. It is not only beautiful but incredibly good for the planet. These Nanjing Towers are slated for completion in 2018. 

This project is being carried on by Italian architect Stefano Boeri in his firm name Stefano Boeri Architetti (SBA). He will be taking this green architectural project to a next level by regenerating local biodiversity through architecture. Nanjing towers will house over 1,000 trees and 2,500 shrubs from 23 unique local species.

There are two towers. One stands at 354 feet and the other one at 656 feet. The taller one will hold museum, offices, rooftop club and a green architecture school while the smaller one will house a rooftop pool and a 247-room Hyatt hotel. Visitors will have the joy to see stunning views of dizzying vertical forests from balconies. 

Vertical forests have been previously established in Milan, Italy. Similar buildings are also scheduled in Lausanne, Switzerland. Similar to the vertical forest in Milan, as the seasons change, hues of green and pink will rotate across the façade. The firm estimates that each day carbon dioxide will be converted to form 132 pounds of oxygen.

The carbon dioxide absorbed will be converted into 132 pounds of oxygen. It will reuse the filtered ‘gray water’ from the building for irrigation purposes.

These towers are 110 and 76 meters high. 11 floors are for commercial usage.

We hope that designers create innovative green buildings like these to combat planet’s growing pollution problems.
