Stefano Boeri is the architect behind this 117m-tall (384ft) apartment tower in Lausanne, Switzerland, that will be the first building worldwide to be covered in trees.

 

“La Tour des Cedres” (The Tower of Cedars) will have more than 100 trees, 6,000 shrubs and 18,000 plants over 3,000 square meters

The plants will protect residents from dust, noise pollution and harsh wind
