Bosco verticale are a couple of skyscrapers recently built in Milano, Italy. “Bosco verticale” means “vertical wood”: it is a concept of urban garden recalling that of Babylon hanging gardens . Each tree was placed on each terrace with the crane visible on the building roof. The area the towers are placed, Porta Nuova, is still under construction.
Present and future
At the feet of the giants
Staying on the shoulders of giants
If you pass by Milano, step out in Porta Garibaldi or Gioia underground station and pay a visit to the two giants.
How do you feel about framing skyscrapers and their urban environments squared?
This project came out the photography group I recently joined in Zürich. I shot these pictures in the newly built area “Porta Nuova” in Milano.
