Italian architect Stefano Boeri wanted to figure out a way to implement more nature into a sprawling cityscape, so he came up with Vertical Forest. A combination nature reserve/residential building, Vertical Forest will contain over 100 leafy trees throughout the main structure. On a 430,000 square ft exposed surface, approximately 32,000 square ft will be covered in trees. It is ideas like this that can work to eradicate terms like “concrete jungle” when thinking of major cities. Construction of Vertical Forest will begin in 2017.
This hotel is very unique with features such as all glass walls in the rooms, but there are curtains when privacy is required. It's a very short ride to the beach where you can surf, kayak, and snorkel. There's a waterfall 5 minutes from the hotel that you can actually slide down. For more info check them out here
