A Treehouse That Protects from Air and Noise Pollution – Vertical Forest
This 5-story apartment building in Turin, Italy Is disguised in potted forest of trees and branching steel beams. Designed by Luciano Pia, this creation transforms Turin’s homogeneous urban scene and blows life into the residential building.
The structure creates a transition from outdoors to in, with 150 trees absorbing close to 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide per hour. Each species of plant has been purposefully chosen from plant life in Turin to provide the diversity in color, foliage, and blooming.
