Bosco Verticale named one of the world’s 50 most iconic skyscrapers of the last 50 years
Bosco Verticale today has been officially included in the list of the world’s 50 most iconic skyscrapers of the last 50 years, adding to its international recognition through industry awards. The ranking was published by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, which had already awarded Bosco Verticale as the world’s most beautiful skyscraper in 2015.
Bosco Verticale is located in the Porta Nuova district, at the heart of one of the most important urban regeneration projects in a European historical centre. The two green towers overlook the 10 hectares of the Biblioteca degli Alberi of Milan, known as BAM. The park is the first example in Italy of a public park managed by a private organisation, the Riccardo Catella Foundation, which is in charge of managing the green space, an important element reconnecting the entire Porta Nuova area. Bosco Verticale, designed by Boeri Studio (Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca, Giovanni La Varra) and built and managed by COIMA, is among the tall buildings that have added the most value to the city and its urban community. Furthermore, since its creation, Bosco Verticale has become a reference point for buildings subsequently developed that integrate a botanic element into their architectural body.
