In the forest in the city
Good morning from Berlin,
Would you like to live in the city and in the forest at the same time? In Milan, where I was a few days ago, that's possible. The Bosco Verticale are two residential towers with a height of 111 metres (364 ft) and 76 metres (249 ft) and contain more than 900 trees.
I very like.
Also because it is a refreshingly new answer to the old question: How do people in big cities want to and can live together? Many people in a small space. Always challenging. Technological progress is constantly changing the options, but urban infrastructure is immobile and can only be changed slowly — a constant tension.
So new things come to town heavily — all the better when it happens, as in Milan.
