Today\u2019s cities are concrete jungles with no much greenery to be found. Liuzhou Forest City is a brilliant green architecture concept that is bound to change the existing perception of urban living.\n\n\n\nThis new city that is being built in southern China\u2019s mountainous Guangxi area will have the perks of living in a city and living in the countryside in one place.\n\n\n\nWith over 40,000 trees,\u00a0green walls\u00a0and 1 million plants that cover every building in the city, Liuzhou is a city that is built in the heart of nature.\n\n\n\nA Vertical Forest\n\n\n\nDespite the fact that Liuzhou Forest takes the concept to a whole new level, the \u201cvertical forest\u201d green architecture concept is not new.\n\n\n\nThere is a wave of new projects all over the world that follow the same approach. Traditional cities are notorious for destroying lots of trees to be built. Cities that do the exact opposite are definitely good environmental news.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIn addition to being good for the environment, this concept results in a living environment that is also good for people\u2019s health. Trees,\u00a0green walls,\u00a0green roof architecture,\u00a0and plants everywhere create a healthy environment with clean, fresh air for the city\u2019s residents.\n\n\n\nGreat for People, Great for the Environment\n\n\n\nIn addition to creating a clean living environment for its residents, this green architecture concept has some great environmental perks.\n\n\n\nThe plants and trees in\u00a0Liuzhou Forest City\u00a0are estimated to absorb 10,000 tons of CO2 and 57 tons of pollutants. In addition to removing harmful pollutants from the air, the trees and plants will add about 900 tons of oxygen each year as well.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAccording to the firm behind the idea, Stefano Boeri Architeetti, such a concentration of plants in a single place will decrease the average air temperature of the city when compared to a traditional city that is built in the same place.\n\n\n\nWith so many plants, green walls and green roof architecture, the city will not disturb the surrounding ecosystem. This is simply because those plants will serve as a continuation of the habitat of the birds, insects and animals that live in the surrounding area.\n\n\n\nWith such revolutionary concepts being widely adopted, new cities will no longer be a disturbance to regional ecosystems but will integrate with them naturally instead.
