The tower will support nearly 10,000 square feet of greenery

This isn’t Italian architect Stefano Boeri’s first “vertical forest,” but it may be his most spectacular. The tower is set to rise in Lausanne, Switzerland and it has foliage poking out of every available nook.

The 384-foot residential tower, called “La Tour des Cedres,” is expected to be built in 2017, according to the Atlantic. When completed, its facade will support nearly 10,000 square feet of greenery.
