What do you think of when people think of green buildings? Perhaps the first second thought is the vertical tall building, vegetation roof or the indoor planting of many trees, but this is only a very simple aspect.
Green building or green design is a building method designed to reduce the harmful effects on the environment and health. Regular use of professional words such as green and sustainable often causes confusion, but green building can be considered as the most sustainable the way.
Let's take a look at the following construction companies or firms who have worked hard in different ways in this direction.
Stefano Boeri Architetti (Italy | Milan Vertical Forest)
Looking back at the vertical forest that was completed in 14 years, it was once popular with microblogging and industry circles, this popular apartment building.
Because the concept of vertical forests has long been proposed, only Boelli's office has finally achieved it, and the high cost of R&D in the early stages has also helped them. It is really the first law firm to eat chicken.
The website of the official website can be found that 60% of Boeri's projects are related to green buildings and there are a lot of green plants. The first vertical forest in Asia is also contracted by Boeri. It is in Nanjing, China.

These open "ground plane" spaces interspersed with different heights still provide users with countless opportunities for recreation, social interaction. The inner-cut outdoor space creates an exclusive landscape full of vitality and change within the building mass, so that the building surrounded by tall buildings does not need to rely too much on the visual landscape effects brought by the external urban environment.
PENDA Architecture (China | Climbing)
After a year of research, Tiida demonstrated their architectural installations "rising" during the 15 years of Beijing Design Week.
This is a device made entirely of bamboo and rope. Bamboo was selected as the main material because of its long tradition and structural performance in China, and its current unattended situation.
In order to make the design a composable system, the device itself is fully modular, ecological and can be extended and added in every direction.
Some people may think that green building is just a kind of wind, foam, or use of technology for it, but when construction and global large-scale construction account for 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions, the air is getting worse and worse. We need to strengthen our actions!
