World's largest tree planter wins award

A jury of architects and real estate investors awarded Bosco Verticale the “International Highrise Award”. The project, they say, is a “role model” for other densely populated areas. I respectfully disagree.

(Perhaps not coincidentally, the jury chair won the last installment of the prize for his high-rise in Sidney. It has a handful of trees on a roof deck, though they are heavily sheltered by tall panes of glass.)
