By 2050, almost 90% of Europeans will live in a city. Given the increasing density of our urban environments, how can we maximize our exposure to fresh air and green spaces? Wonderwoods is the practice's answer to that question.
This non-identical pair of towers combines high-density living and working with a vertical park, adding a verdant, outdoorsy dimension to the buzzing heart of Utrecht.
Wonderwoods is a co-production from MVSA Architects and Stefano Boeri Architetti.
Each office designed one of the towers along the same vegetation-rich, transparent and sustainable lines, with the resulting buildings – related yet different – boosting the diversity and dynamism of the project.
