If you are familiar with the latest architecture trends, it is very likely that you think about buildings planted with trees and bushes on each floor in case you hear the name Stefano Boeri. In 2015, his architecture firm announced to build the first Cedar Trees Tower in Switzerland. Some months later, the Italian designer presented a planned building project – a high-rise park called Vertical Forest – for the Chinese city of Nanjing. But only one with trees planted multi-storey building doesn’t seem to be enough. China recently started construction work on Liuzhou Forest City in the southern Chinese Province Guangxi west of Hongkong. It stretches over 175 hectares along the Liujiang River. Very likely the first ever planned city consisting of plenty of buildings with extensive facade greenery.
