'Wonderwoods',the latest green tower block design in the Netherlands estimated to breath out 41 tonnes of oxygen a year.

Utrecht is the latest city to get the green treatment from celebrated architect Stefano Boeri,the 66-year old Italian architect who amused the world with his first vertical forest in Milan a decade ago. The Wonderwoods vertical forest is taking root in the Utrecht neighbourhood between Croeselaan and Jaarbeursboulevard and will be ready for residents by summer 2024. With 300 trees of 30 different species on its facade and thousands of plants the tower will hold the same vegetation as one hectare of forest.This urban ecosystem is capable of producing around 41 tonnes of oxygen every year while sucking in CO2 and capturing fine dust particles. In summer,the shade of its foliage reduces the heat island effect,lowering the temperature on the facades and inside the building.This has a significant impact on the local microclimate and the wellbeing of residents,especially as the risk of heatwaves increases due to climate change. https://www.euronews.com/green/2023/05/25/utrechts-new-vertical-forest-will-be-home-to-10000-plants-and-trees-how-will-residents-ben

                          Congratulations to @Stefano for this artistic creation. This a great roadmap towards creating clea cities, reducing carbon emissions and reducing heat waves.
