A vertical forest is expected to be completed this year in Milan. There are two tower apartment complexes which contain a total of 400 residential units. The facade of the buildings will be covered with 730 trees, 5,000 shrubs, and 11,000 perennial plants. It is expected to have the same ecological impact as 10,000 square meters of forest.
Aside from fighting smog and producing oxygen, the foliage is expected to provide insulation to the residential units.

A few snaps from when we had that one day of summer… bank holiday monday.
When my friend & I went to see the Raquib Shaw talk… we were entertained by the art but not the talk. A bunch of self-indulgent lecturers waffling on incoherently about the meanings of specific motifs in the works.
But they seemed to miss out on the obvious - the very visceral nature of his work. Stand back from it and it is gaudy, beautiful and dazzling, but the closer you get you see how untamed, beastly and violent it is. Much like sex. Or at least how sex is glamorised by society. Don’t look too closely, and you won’t see how the glitz and airbrushing and apparent beauty mask the underlying basic animal nature of fucking.
Personally I think Raquib Shaw is pushing this in our faces in a way that is more obvious, yet as it is Art, seems to want to be ignored by ‘scholars’.
