Vertical Garden City projects (by Mori)
Urban Design Consultant: Mori (Japan)
From their website:
Adopting the “Vertical Garden Cities” as our redevelopment concept, one of our primary missions is to build environmentally friendly cities rich in greenery, striving to maximize open space and “green” the cityscape. Through intelligent consolidation and redevelopment of densely developed areas and the building of high-rise buildings to free surface land for greenery and by taking proactive steps to “green” the buildings with roof gardens, we are able to create numerous corners of nature within the city.
