Quite Literally Green Towers in Milan

‘Look how the sun is shining through the trees of the forest in the middle of Milan!’ – this motto is taken from the site of Italian firm Stefano Boeri Architetti. Indeed, if you look up at the two monumental towers, you’ll see the sun rays making their way straight through the branches of the real trees, that were planted around the perimeter of the buildings. The functionality of the vegetation layers is not only in their aesthetic appointment, but also in reducing the need for temperature regulation within the building and filtering the air of the city. For planting pre-grown trees were selected which correspond to regional climate, light and wind condition. The two buildings are the first of this kind in the world.

This cheerful building for Consell Kindergarten (Mallorca, Spain) has been incarnated by the architects of the Spanish Office RipollTizon. The building has an unusual Z-shaped form and includes a few classrooms, psychomotor classroom and a dining area with a kitchen. The form of the building was chosen as necessity of creating a connection with the adjacent housing, and opportunity for entering the kindergarten from the main avenue. The coloration of the kindergarten repeats the colors of the groves nearby, where oranges, lemons and limes grow. The classrooms are clustered by two; the clusters have a glazed facade and a porch towards an outdoor playground. The construction protects the terrace against rain. Orientation to the east provides natural daylighting.
