It’s coming to the end of the year where we have the chance to take a glance over what 2017 has brought to us, and also what it means for the future. We assess 10 designs that have emerged this year and how they are working towards a more sustainable future.
This quite brilliant design of a ‘vertical forest city’ aimed at tackling the issue of smog in China is one of our favourites. As global warming and climate change is an increasing problem year on year, this is a very inventive and beautiful way of trying to take on the problem. To successfully make a difference you would be correct in thinking there would need to be a fair few trees, so the new city will feature nearly 40,000 trees and almost one million plants, comprising 100 different species.
