  • The idea of integrating architecture with nature has always been in the mind of architects and landscape designers. Throughout our evolutionary history we tried to combine these two concepts together. We have reached a moment in history where it is no longer necessary to sacrifice one for the other. Stefano Boeri is the first architect who had the opportunity to build a residential tower covered in trees, his “Bosco Verticale” (vertical forest).
  • For the upcoming March 2 initiative aimed at promoting an important sector of Italian creativity, the Italian Cultural Institutes of New York and Los Angeles are hosting world-famous architects to mark the occasion.
  • 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.
  • In Venice, the International Art Exhibition celebrates its 55th anniversary, embracing 88 countries from all over the world. This year's edition will be named "The Encyclopedic palace," and it will mix different inspirations, inflections and movements together.
