Seeing these massive vertical forests may take your breath away, so it`s a good thing they will produce 132 pounds (60kg) of fresh air every day. Asia is having a lot of problems with pollution so hopefully these forests will make a difference.
The Nanjing Towers will become a reality in 2018 and will be Asia`s first vertical forest of this kind. Stefano Boeri, an Italian architect is the visionary behind this awesome project that will house more than 1.000 trees and 2.500 shrubs from 23 different species.
The tallest tower (656ft) will hold a museum, a rooftop club, a green architecture school and offices. The smaller one (351ft) will have a rooftop pool and a hotel with 247 rooms. Needles to say the balconies from both will offer some breathtaking views of the city.
