Jack Eidt — Posted on January 15, Posted in: Design , Urban Land Bosco Verticale or Vertical Forest, the first phase of re-envisioning of Milan, Italy, with an eye toward ecological urbanism, integrating tree and skyscraper, city and wild.

Architect Stefano Boeri notes that if the units were to be constructed unstacked as stand-alone across a single surface, the project would require 50, square meters of land, and 10, square meters of woodland. Bosco Verticale is the first in his proposed BioMilano, which envisions a greenbelt around the city to incorporate 60 abandoned farms on the outskirts of the city to be revitalized for community use. The six conceptual plans further advocate creation of a greenbelt around the city and restoring to community use 60 abandoned farms on the urban periphery.

In Mr. Six transitional states between the city, nature and agriculture. Six energy sources for a new model of urban economics. In India, a project to build the Mahindra World City as an eco-city seems to be falling short of that label as well. The Vertical Forest would add only 5 percent to the cost of the building and be an integral response to urban sprawl.

Wood House: social housing and the tree cycle The Wood House project aims to build low density and low cost social housing by using prefabricated forms of architecture and wooden panels recycled after conservation work on the trees which run along the Ticino River. Courtyard Farms. A constellation of epicentres within systems of neighbourhood agriculture The project for the restoration of 60 publicly owned and abandoned courtyard farms around Milan has its origins in the plan to create a new relationship between the city and new forms of agriculture.

This kind of agriculture is more varied than in the past fruit and vegetables, cereal crops, productive woods, bio-mass and produces for the city as well as allowing for different kinds of research, training and work.

Cities that rely on food being imported over long distances could find that it is expensive and leaves them vulnerable to shortages. Urban agriculture mitigates against threats to long-term food security. Expo a global kitchen garden The project for EXPO will create a vast global kitchen garden in an unused area to the northwest of Milan. Instead of the traditional national pavilions, each country invited to the expo will have a section of land on which to grow things, where it can display forms of bio-diversity, technologies, and possible solutions to problems linked to food and its supply.

After the Expo, Milan will be left with a large area which will be used to carry out research into the production and the representation of different forms of agriculture, seeding and food production. Metrobosco: a forest around Milan Metrobosco, already underway, aims to tie together existing open, wild and agricultural lands in metropolitan Milan to create a ring of forests, planting 3 million trees.

Planned in cooperation with the Province of Milan and the Politecnico di Milano, three million trees will be planted, in cooperation with farmers and business owners who own the land, financed by the towns around the city. Biological and plant decontamination of polluted urban areas The cleaning up of ex-industrial areas and obsolete structures in the city through biological and plant cultivation creates new possibilities for public open space.

Through the cultivation of polluted land, they can be cleaned-up and biomass is also created, and in this way the city can regain lost spaces which were seemingly lost forever.
