Italian architect Stefano Boeri likes to mix engineered constructions with greenery, and his latest project was no exception. Soon, in Lausanne, Switzerland, a 384-foot, 35-floor, multiple-dwelling skyscraper covered with evergreen plants will appear.
On the building’s façades — which are about 32,000 square feet — over 100 trees and 6,000 shrubs will be planted.
Inside there will be one- and two-bedroom apartments, a gym and office units.
Plants will protect the residents from dust, noise and strong wind.
Two similar towers, which are 360- and 250-feet-tall, have already been built as part of the architect’s project for Milan.
