Vertical Forest: 384ft-Tall Apartment Tower in Switzerland

Italian architect stefano boeri has been chosen to build a 117 meter-tall residential tower in lausanne, switzerland. the project, which bears many similarities with boeri’s ‘bosco verticale’ in milan, will be home to more than 100 trees as part of 3,000 square meters of greenery.

Apartment units protrude from the structure offering views towards the adjacent lake geneva. named ‘la tour des cedres’, work on the building is set to get underway in 2017, with a completion date yet to be established. stefano boeri’s milan-based studio will develop the scheme in collaboration with studio laura gatti and burohappold engineering.
