This apartment tower in Lausanne, Switzerland, will be the first building in the world to be covered in evergreen trees. Designed by Stefano Boeri, an Italian architect, the apartment stands at 117 meters tall.
The 36-story green tower is named "La Tour des Cedres" (The Tower of Cedars)
It will be home to more than 100 trees, 6,000 shrubs, and 18,000 plants spread over 3,000 square meters of green space.
The plants will protect the apartments from harsh winds, dust, and noise pollution.
This is the second project of its kind by Boeri.
