Bosco Verticale named one of the world’s 50 most iconic skyscrapers of the last 50 years

Chicago, 8 October 2019

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has selected Bosco Verticale as one of the world’s 50 buildings that are most valuable in terms of growth and sustainable development in their cities, representing a model for future skyscrapers.

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, built and managed by COIMA, with the Interior Design project developed by COIMA Image, 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. An example of perfect integration between men and nature witch doesn't stop at the appearance, but continues inside, thanks to the Interior Design and Space Planning project, created by COIMA Image.
