Stefano Boeri is the first architect who had the opportunity to build a residential tower covered in trees, his “Bosco Verticale” (vertical forest).

    Expo 2015 is an innovative showcase. Unlike World Fairs of the past, its focus is more ideas than icons. Past universal expositions left majestic architectural monuments: London’s Crystal Palace from 1851, Paris’s Eiffel Tower from 1889, and Rome’s EUR district, still magnificent even though war canceled that Expo in 1942.
  • Italians architects continue to be world leaders in design. Renzo Piano, 77, is the creator of no less than 21 projects for museums all over the world; only the most recent is his redesign for the once stodgy Harvard Art Museum in Boston. Now Stefano Boeri, 58, has just won the $62,000 International Highrise Award for his “Bosco Verticale” (Vertical Woodland) twin high rise-towers of 111 and 78 floors respectively in Milan.
