Intermittent Fasting Milan’s Vertical Forest Wednesday, 12 October 2011 GreenMuze Staff Milan’s Vertical Forest from Stefan Boeri Architects. The Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) will be the greenest building in Milan when completed, which is one of Europe’s most polluted cities. Designed by Stefan Boeri Architects, as part of their BioMilano vision to incorporate 60 abandoned farms into a greenbelt surrounding the city. The Bosco Verticale building has a green façade planted with dense forest systems to provide a building microclimate and to filter out polluting dust particles. The living bio-canopy also absorbs CO2, oxygenates the air, moderates extreme temperatures and lowers noise pollution, providing aesthetic beauty and lowering living costs. Each apartment balcony will have trees (900 plantings are planned for the two buildings) that will provide shade in the summer and drop their leaves in winter to allow in winter sunlight.

Can’t decided whether you’re a cat person or a dog person? Want a pet that will play fetch and come running to the sound of its name, but also knows how to use the litter? Well, now you can have the look of the former with the personality of the latter! In an attempt to engineer a punky alternative to the small domestic cat, a Bengal breeder created something extraordinary. The Savannah is the largest hybrid Serval/domestic cat, born in 1986 and registered as a true breed in 2001 by TICA (The International Cat Association).
