Creators of the world’s very first vertical forest, Stefano Boeri Architetti (SBA) has recently unveiled plans for its third verdant vertical structure: the Mountain Forest Hotel. To be constructed in Guizhou, China, this magnificent 250-room building attempts to emulate the natural topography of the 10 Thousand Peaks valley, located in the same region.
Like the Bosco Verticale in Milan and The Tower of the Cedars in Switzerland, the current project features nature as one of the essential components of the urban structure. According to architect Stefano Boeri, green architecture and vertical forests are important means to secure the future of our planet. Speaking about the concept, Boeri of SBA Studios said:
Sustainability not only depends on energy conservation, but on a wider biodiversity. The symbiosis between man, architecture and nature is the real sustainability… slowing down the climate changes, reducing CO2 emissions, making our living sustainable and in harmony with nature.
In addition to its impressive eco-friendly credentials, the Mountain Forest Hotel will boast an array of modern luxuries, including a gym, lounge, VIP area, restaurant, bar and conference space.
