Vertical Forest China probably has the worst air quality in the world. The good thing is that they are realising their mistakes and putting an effort to fix the problem. One of their strategies is to create “forest cities”. The plan is to build cities full of skyscrapers covered in trees and vegetation. Another name for these skyscrapers is “Vertical forests”. (Personally I think they are incredible and cool designs. A couple have been built in Italy by architect Stefano Boeri, who is actually the man China called to help. Boeri’s designs are and will be used to better the air quality of bustling cities and polluted land. They are a bit pricey though, his first vertical forest project cost about $85.7million. Forest cities (many of these skyscrapers built together), will certainly cost more. But because they are cities instead of a couple skyscrapers, they will have a bigger impact. Vertical Forests are definitely a better alternative to the original skyscraper design, because they help keep the air clean.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
