Easyhome Huanggang Vertical Forest City Complex is the first of its kind to open in China, and the architect believes these types of buildings could be especially suitable for the country.
20 images of Easyhome Huanggang — China’s first Vertical Forest
Easyhome Huanggang Vertical Forest City Complex, located in the city of Huanggang in Hubei province, is the very first Chinese Vertical Forest designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti China. It’s a new type of Vertical Forest combining open and closed balconies that interrupt the regularity of the building and create a continuous ever-changing movement underlined by the presence of trees and shrubs. All the plants are able to develop freely in height since the foliage fits perfectly into the façade design. The project integrates 404 trees and will absorb 22 tons per year of CO2 while producing 11 tons per year of oxygen. — StefanoBoeriArchitetti
