China is creating the first ‘forest city’ where every building is covered in plants

China is constructing the world’s first forest city where all the buildings are covered in plants and trees. Once completed the Liuzhou Forest City will be home to 30,000 residents, absorb almost 10,000 tons of CO2 and 57 tons of pollutants per year and produce approximately 900 tons of oxygen.

The city will be built in the north of Liuzhou, in the mountain area of Guangxi, in the southern part of China along the Liujiang River. Liuzhou Forest City will host in total 40,000 trees and almost 1 million plants of over 100 species. The Master Plan by Stefano Boeri Architetti should be completed by 2020.
