La Forêt Blanche and Balcon sur Paris win the Marne Europe – Villiers sur Marne competition.


La Forêt Blanche, the project by Stefano Boeri Architetti promoted by Compagnie de Phalsbourg, will be a 54-meter tower with a structure entirely in wood.


The facades of the Forêt Blanche will be covered with 2000 trees, shrubs and plants, for a green area equal to one hectare of forest, 10 times the area of the lot on which the building will stand.

The first French Vertical Forest will be built in the municipality of Villiers sur Marne, in the eastern quadrant of the Parisian metropolitan area.


The Forêt Blanche will contain apartments on the upper levels, offices and shops in the lower part, with a mixture of terraces and balconies on all four sides of the tower. Parigi il primo Bosco Verticale/
