25 Verde by Luciano Pia
To save the metropolis from excessive gas content architects use cutting-edge technology on planting vertical gardens with a special design, soil. However, the designer from Turin, Italy did not use such a complex procedure and arranged the pots with trees and bushes right in front of the building. Green areas have become an effective filter, saving the house from pollution and sun. In an effort to diversify the “gray” urban landscape designer Luciano Pia designed a building with a facade covered with pots of trees and shrubs, named 25 Verde. They are attached to the special steel construction made in the form of tree branches, and play an important role in purifying the air. And what’s more important: 150 trees and bushes planted on the front of the house, able to absorb 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide and produce 150,000 liters of oxygen per hour. In addition to the natural protection from pollution dense foliage suppresses sudden noises coming from the busy street, forms a positive indoor climate, protecting the area from sudden changes in temperature, and scatters the bright sunlight.
