For thousands of years, cities have been developing towards the goal of providing a safer place for human beings. Today, about 55% of the world's population lives in urban areas, and this number is expected to increase to 68% by 2050. It is a beautiful idea to create sustainable and pollution-free buildings and communities in forests, grasslands and nature, but we should realize that with the deepening of human activities on the earth, the so-called pure "nature" without human involvement or large areas is no longer there. Now, people should have the courage to face reality and consider how to apply the concept of sustainability in the context of high-density cities. In a larger format and in a more sustainable way, we will pay close attention to the more critical and urgent issues of the current relationship between humans, cities and nature.
As defenders of urban ecology and sustainable development, Boeri Architects has always placed nature and trees at the heart of our research projects. In 2021, seven years after the completion of the world's first vertical forest - Milan Vertical Forest, two vertical forests in Huanggang, China and Nanjing, China have also been completed. How these towers, which carry the building ecosystem composed of plants, animals, and humans, become an important driving force for improving the urban natural environment, increasing biodiversity, and contributing to the realization of the national double-carbon goal is what we have been pursuing. The problem. I also hope to take this opportunity to share the design practice experience of more than ten years. In this way, the research work on the future urban dual carbon and ecological diversity practice will continue to provide an imaginary with infinite possibilities for the development of the future city.
1、Understanding the vital role of plants in urban biodiversity
2、Find out how buildings can help meet dual carbon goals
3、Understand the overall design process of green buildings
