Vertical Forest: An Urban Treehouse That Protect Residents from Air and Noise Pollution

Designed by Luciano Pia, 25 Verde brings plants up off the ground in an attempt to evade Turin’s homogeneous urban scene and integrate life into the facade of the residential building. The undulating structure creates a transition from outdoors to in, holding 150 trees that absorb close to 200,000 liters of carbon dioxide an hour. This natural absorption brings pollution protection to its residents, helping to eliminate harmful gasses caused by cars and harsh sounds from the bustling streets outside.

The trees’ seasonal progression also creates the ideal microclimate inside the building, steadying temperature extremes during the cold and warmer months.

The Minister’s Treehouse in Crossville, Tennessee was built by landscape architect Horace Burgess from the early 1990s through 2004. Soaring 100 feet high, the entire building wraps around seven giant white oak trees and covers nearly 10,000 square. All of this was with reclaimed wood and without blueprints. Horace still has a growing vision for the treehouse and plans in Phase 2 to include an elevator, power, plumbing, heating, and a “Stairway to Heaven” that will twist up the span of the belfry. Rooted Tree House « World with Love. The project emerged as a place of adventure for children and a hideaway, a placeof relaxation for adults.

The Rooted Treehouse, designed and built by Alicante-based Urbanarbolismo, is hidden amongst the branches and leaves of the tree as a secret escape.
