I don't know what to think about this. But this is one of the most bullshitty appeals to environmentalism I've ever seen.

If you want to make green architecture, the first thing you shouldn't do is make a 300 meter tall cobweb of steel tubes for the hell of it.

Is there a building in there somewhere? The pics give the impression of a two, maybe three stories at ground level and then a park on stilts.

I don't know, it looks a little claustrophobic.

On another note, I love that they have an F-16 Fighter in there - the most beautiful plane ever created.

Three things about this house:

- I love the open space and then natural light
- I'd hate, or rather have a phobia of not being able to see outside at night but someone potentially being able to see inside, even though the house is isolated.
- On mornings in which I'm hung over and light becomes noise inside my head there is nowhere to escape to which is nice and dark.

I really like that tower in Spain. Very Labelking. That brutalist glam rock aesthetic is growing on me, or at least no longer making me depressed.

Here's my two sentence thesis on Bjarke Ingels:

When Bjarke Ingels designs masterplans and mixed programmatic projects (i.e. mixed income housing, commercial developments, etc.) they are abrasive, tacky, unromantic, narcissistic, ugly, and unfit for the aging process. When B.I. designs single use buildings of modest scale (i.e. museums, cultural centers, single towers, dog houses etc.) his buildings are less bad, sometimes even good, and occasionally really good.

Good Bjarke Ingels:

I get where you are coming from and I agree on a big part of it, the two projects you call bad are multi award wining, the funny part is that they haven't been able to sell all the units and had to sell half of the units in in The VM mountain for cost or lower and the developer went belly up on both of them, the same has happened with his new project 8-tallet and the developer has gone bust already, so if the theme keeps going, the new project is going to a commercial failure as well.

The main problem is that they locate the developments in rubbish places, where people don't want to live.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this finished, it's either going to be fantastic or absolutely rubbish.

Bosco Veticale
BOERISTUDIO
Milano
Being Build

Quote:
Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) is a project for metropolitan reforestation that contributes to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity without the implication of expanding the city upon the territory. Bosco Verticale is a model of vertical densification of nature within the city. It is a model that operates correlated to the policies for reforestation and naturalization of the large urban and metropolitan borders (Metrosbosco). Metrobosco and Bosco Verticale are devices for the environmental survival of contemporary European cities. Together they create two modes of building links between nature and city within the territory and within the cities of contemporary Europe.
The first example of a Bosco Verticale composed of two residential towers of 110 and 76 meters height, will be realized in the centre of Milan, on the edge of the Isola neighbourhood, and will host 900 trees (each measuring 3, 6 or 9 m tall) apart from a wide range of shrubs and floral plants.
On flat land, each Bosco Verticale equals, in amount of trees, an area equal to 10.000 sqm of forest. In terms of urban densification the equivalent of an area of single family dwellings of nearly 50.000 sqm.
The Bosco Verticale is a system that optimizes, recuperates and produces energy. The Bosco Verticale aids in the creation of a microclimate and in filtering the dust particles contained in the urban environment. The diversity of the plants and their characteristics produce humidity, absorb CO2 and dust particles, producing oxygen and protect from radiation and acoustic pollution, improving the quality of living spaces and saving energy. Plant irrigation will be produced to great extent through the filtering and reuse of the grey waters produced by the building. Additionally Aeolian and photovoltaic energy systems will contribute, together with the aforementioned microclimate to increase the degree of energetic self sufficiency of the two towers. The management and maintenance of the Bosco Verticale’s vegetation will be centralised and entrusted to an agency with an office counter open to the public.

^ Am I crazy or do those balconies look way too shallow for the size of those trees' roots systems?

Jean Nouvel's residential tower in LA was a very similar concept. He had lots of desert plants on his. It was one of my favorite big name residential projects that got shelved in the recession.

Nevermind. It looks like Nouvel took his tower to Sydney

Not sure if this has been posted here:

I'm guessing the video has no new info to offer the architecture junkies here, but it warms this Angeleno's heart.
