Vertical Forest Project will help build "green" skyscrapers
In some cities in China in the near future will be built several skyscrapers covered with greenery. Inside will be the usual office space, restaurants, shopping malls and other attributes of conventional buildings. But on the outside they look like huge green tower. Construction will be implemented in the framework of the project Vertical Forest, which aims not only to decorate the gray appearance of cities, but also to help in cleaning the air.
According to the authors Vertical Forest, this year will lay the foundation for the construction of the first two towers - the height of 200 and 108 meters respectively. Both buildings will be "vertical forest" that fit in the currently 23 species of local flora, including about 900 large trees and over a thousand shrubs, climbing plants and flowers. As project developers, all this splendor will consume about 25 tons of carbon dioxide and produce about 60 kilograms of oxygen daily.
Go to the project on the creation of such "unconventional" urban greening China's government has pushed the deficit areas. Therefore, despite the high cost of construction, this approach will pay off not only financially in the future, but also from the health of local residents. In addition, now there are many who want to get a personal section of the forest at high altitude. For funding Vertical Forest Project meets state corporation Nanjing Yang Zi, whose representatives claim that the completion of construction and commissioning should take place in 2018. The first two skyscrapers will be built in Nanjing, but in terms of the company's management is also included in this garden the way in Shijiazhuang City, Guizhou, Shanghai and Chongqing.
