Live-ing Forest is a model for sustainable residential building, a project for metropolitan reforestation that contributes to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity without the implication of expanding the city upon the territory.
Live-ing Forest increases biodiversity. It helps to set up an urban ecosystem where different kinds of vegetation create a vertical environment which can also be colonized by birds and insects, and thus becomes both a magnet for and a symbol of the spontaneous recolonization of the city by vegetation and by animal life.
Live-ing Forest helps to build a micro-climate and to filter dust particles which are present in the urban environment. The diversity of the plants helps to create humidity, and absorb CO2 and dust, produces oxygen, protects people and houses from the suns rays and from acoustic pollution.
Live-ing Forest is a sustainable measure which aims to control and reduce urban expansion. In order to understand the need for water the plan for these buildings took into account the distribution of plants across various floors and their positioning.
