Trees enthusiasts are everywhere

 

Think about you feelings after a walk in the forest, a swim in a lake, a weekend spent camping or any other nature experience you recently had. Mondays come and you feel detached by your urban-self...


It's not just a feeling though. Trees improve the air quality, minimize greenhouse gasses, provide shade, offer a means of noise reduction and insulate, decreasing the need for air conditioning systems.

Break the Building Jungle


What if we started building with the green factor in the city?

Architectural Digest provided our Friday inspiration, with 5 tree-centric buildings from Vietnam with Vo Trong Nghia Architects to Switzerland with Stefano Boeri Architetti that incorporated the arboreal aesthetic and practical benefits.

These buildings are the sign that the trend has been set and we can't deny excitement for all the different ways the arbor element will be integrated. 

This trio of buildings (each 22 stories) in   Ho Chi Minh City are covered in bamboo and linked with bridges shaded by foliage. Set on a roughly 90,400-square-foot plot, the three buildings will accommodate roughly 720 residences, all with access to the communal rooftop garden.

Talking about trees, we cannot not mention Greenpop in South Africa, the tree planting social enterprise that is making the future of reforestation way more optimistic! Find out how to donate trees with Greenpop!
