‘Vertical garden’ 30-story high-rise set for Australian city is covered in more than 20,000 trees and plants

Urban Forest, a 30-story high-rise planned for South Brisbane, will be covered in a ‘vertical garden’ of over 20,000 trees and plants, more than five times the greenery found in a nearby park.

Raised up on large ‘tree trunk’ columns, the latest masterpiece from Sydney-based architect Koichi Takada includes 382 apartments, with sculpturesque stepped facades and extended balconies offering plenty of outdoor time.

Plans incorporate solar panels, rainwater collection units, and a two-story rooftop garden, as well as a sheltered space on the ground level that will serve as a small public park.

The overall design is intended to maximize natural light and cross-ventilation, while the foliage will also provide natural insulation.
