Forest City !!


Awareness.. Speech / Discussion .. A short initiation.. Forget .. Tadaahh !! – The motto we all are following these days over any issue. Be it Swachh Bharat or a personal resolution initiated on a New year day B-) But, the nature doesn’t halt for anything or anyone. It just paves the way for her next stage.

It all ends, where it starts – Some legend said this

Survival of the fittest – Herbert Spencer

The trees and plants are intended to absorb almost 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 57 tons of pollutants per year.

I don’t know how many of you aware of this. This might be a boring epitome but I couldn’t stop starting with this. This is what we are driving the world. In our day-to-day busy lives, with no idea of outcome towards life — Sudden jerk from the nature tends us to pray or scold or die in grief but we never admit completely over the flaws and sins we’ve committed all these years. Do you have any idea, what you gonna live with after earning all these and attaining some 40 or 50 or 60 years? Why you are working or for what you are striving? I know, YOLO is the new strategy and life motto these days but we should be attentive to preserve something for our next generation even. Just think beyond our limits, we should give them better life.. Here, life doesn’t ends with wealth and health you inherit to them but also the nature. I must admit here that I didn’t took any step as of now in order to protect or save nature and I regret for that. We must give the scope of natural living to our next generation unlike most of the young kids visiting the zoo for sparrows out of curiosity. Uff!! Enough of this speculation 😛 #sic

China is going to unveil a ” forest city ” in the southern city of Liuzhou.  The 342-acre, self-contained neighborhood will comprise more than 70 buildings, including homes, hospitals, hotels, schools and offices all of which will be covered with 40,000 trees and almost a million plants. Eventually, up to 30,000 people could call the Forest City home.

In his new book "Building Community: New Apartment Architecture," Michael Webb looks at 30 of the world's most compelling new apartment buildings. <br /><br />The Interlace comprises 31 identical six-story blocks stacked on top of each other. In the spaces between them are eight courtyards and an Olympic-sized swimming pool, creating a micro community outside of the city center. <br /><br />"We wanted togetherness, not isolation; a return to when Singapore was a village of little buildings, tightly knit together," Ole Scheeren says in the book.

This was designed by an Italian firm Stefano boeri Architetti who were reputed for their vertical foresting world wide. This isn’t their only project, if you give a look over their portal you will find the spell bounding designs they have made. Their work on Towers of Cedars in Lussane, Switzerland and the Boeri’s Vertical forest in Milan, Italy made my eyes glued to screen 😀

Cedar’s design is able to survive in severe weather conditions.

Hosting 900 trees and hundreds of shrubs

As per the alleged information, these 342 acre forest city is going to be four man made islands ^_^

These two buildings looks like those hanging hills in Avatar right!! Thanks to Skyscrapers !!

Take a look at this stats: The above two residential towers in Milan covered in the equivalent of five acres of forest. Completed in 2014, they remove 30,000 to 35,000 pounds (15 to 17.5 tons) of soot from the air each year, according to Boeri, meeting his team’s expectations.

Liuzhou Forest City will span 175 hectares, or 0.67 miles, along the Liujiang River.

Imagine this.. This 342 acre forest city can save pollution up to 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 57 tons of pollutants per year approximately with a production of 900 tons of oxygen in addition. How much benefit the city is providing to the country. This doesn’t mean to withdraw the pollution controlling conditions or increase in erroneous look towards nature. In addition to the controlling measures, these huge projects will make us help to save the nature at a higher rate.

Here is the preview video found in mashable and geobeats news with respect to the design 🙂

Try to plant a shrub or grow tiny plant in the window at least to make your kids to give a glimpse of those tiny birds. Show some nature love.
