Talented designer Stefano Boeri has added more green space to the region of Switzerland with his design of what is known as a "vertical forest" that features living plants, foliage and trees throughout the tower's various levels. The building adds a refreshing view of green to the city of Lausanne's skyline as well as a natural source of carbon dioxide filtration.
Boeri is one of the leaders in creating green architectural spaces that offer a distinct balance between design and an environmental focus. The building features 36 different floors for apartments and offices that each contain trees and plants cascading off of the various balconies. The building is roughly 117-metres tall and features a green roof for more forest space.
