Forest City Project, there is less left

Pollution in the environment is a reality and the evidence on the effects of global warming on our planet is not indifferent to anyone. Increasingly, the resulting problems are noted and we must think of quick and effective solutions.

Have you heard about the Forest City project?

Forest City is an architectural project with the aim of creating a habitable space that does not negatively affect the environment and reduces pollution. This project is being carried out in Liuzhou, and turning it into The Forest City in 2020 where more than 40,000 trees and one million plants will be planted to cover the facades of each building. Forest City will have the capacity to be home to approximately 30,000 people who will live surrounded by more than 100 different species of plants, demonstrating that coexisting with the environment in a sustainable environment is more than possible. Liuzhou Forest City will be equipped with everything a smart city needs, with all the amenities, such as a train, shopping areas, residential areas, recreational spaces, a hospital and two schools. Everything without exception will work with renewable energy such as solar, solar panels will be installed on the roofs of buildings to produce renewable energy; or the geothermal one with which the energy for the air conditioning will be obtained. These energies that will allow the city to be self-sufficient. The design of this architectural work is by Stefano Boeri Architetti, an Italian team that develops ecological projects around the world, best known for the construction of the first vertical forest tower in the world, the Bosco Verticale in Milan, another architectural work created with the aim of benefiting the environment and reducing pollution. Forest City will have an extension of 175 hectares that will be located along the Liujiang River in the northern part of Liuzhou. The project is very important for China because, if it is successful, it will be an example for the design of green cities in other parts of the country and the world. The diffusion of nature, not only in parks and gardens or along the streets, but also on building facades, will allow the energy self-sufficient city to contribute to improve air quality, lower its average temperature, create noise barriers and improve the biodiversity of living species, generating habitat for birds, insects and small animals that inhabit the territory of Liuzhou. The vegetation will absorb almost ten thousand tons of carbon dioxide and fifty-seven tons of pollutants, producing nine hundred tons of oxygen per year. This is intended to reduce the average air temperature to improve local air quality and create noise barriers. At Ideatec, we support the conservation and care of the environment. The development of urban and architectural models for environmental regeneration, soil demineralization and increased biodiversity is one of the bases of progress and we hope that it will be capable of becoming a model of sustainable growth on a global level.
