Amazing Evergreen Trees Covered World’s First Building.

Italian architect Stefano Boeri likes to mix engineered constructions with greenery, and his latest project was no exception. Soon, in Lausanne, Switzerland, a 384-foot, 35-floor, multiple-dwelling skyscraper covered with evergreen plants will appear.

Stefano Boeri’s 117m-tall (384ft) apartment tower will be the first vertical evergreen forest in the world

“La Tour des Cedres” (The Tower of Cedars) will have more than 100 trees, 6,000 shrubs and 18,000 plants over 3,000 square meters

The plants will protect residents from dust, noise pollution and harsh wind
