The Urban Tree House
Turin

Italian architect Luciano Pia has a cool vision for how people and nature can live together in cities. 25 Verde, an apartment complex he designed in Turin, is a woven 5-story mix of green trees and steel girders that let urban residents feel like they live in a giant urban tree house. Rainwater is collected to water the 150 trees that clean the air and reduce noise pollution in return. Who wouldn’t want to live here!
