Bosconavigli is Stefano Boeri’s new “horizontal forest” in Milan

By integrating public and private green, this new building near Zona Tortona will use plants to fight climate change. 

Conceived by Stefano Boeri, Bosconavigli is a residential development project designed together with Arassociati and AG&P greenscape. The building will be the heart of a major renovation plan, which will connect the Tortona area with Navigli (the city’s canals), redeveloping via San Cristoforo and becoming an important piece for Milan’s urban reforestation.

Halfway between city and nature, the building will be integrated within the landscape, in order to blend in with the surroundings, and in the future a wide area of public parks will rise nearby. Facades and rooftops will also feature dense vegetation. New technological and constructive solutions will ensure an excellent environmental sustainability; the vegetative system is designed in fact to filter particles, reduce pollution and energy consumption, thanks to the thermal inertia of vegetation.
