AE Interests:  Concept of regenerating the lost forests, the towers together have the capacity to hold 480 big and medium sized trees, 250 small size trees, 11,000 ground-cover plants and 5,000 shrubs… the equivalent of a hectare of forest. The vertical Forest helps to build a micro-climate and to filter dust particles. Diversity of the plants helps to create humidity, and absorb CO2 and dust, produces oxygen, protects people and houses from the suns rays.  Plants were pre-cultivated allowing the plants to get used to the conditions they were placed in on the buildings. `
