A tree city in China

The Independent recently reported the construction of one of the world’s first ‘forest cities’, designed by Stefano Boeri, who also designed two vertical skyscraper ‘forests’.  The city is currently under construction in Liuzhou, Guangxi Province.

Once completed, the new city will house some  30,000 people and will absorb almost 10,000 tons of CO2, 57 tons of pollutants per year and produce approximately 900 tons of oxygen.  The Independent says that the city will achieve all this thanks to roughly a million plants from over 100 species, as well as 40,000 trees being planted in facades over almost every surface imaginable.
