Stefano Boeri was born in Milan in 1956 and is one of the world's leading architects through introducing the concept of biodiversity in architecture. His work ranges from the production of urban visions to the design of architecture and open spaces, including the waterfronts of Naples, Trieste, Genoa, La Maddalena, Doha, Marseilles and Thessaloniki with a focus on geopolitical and environmental implications of urban phenomena. He created Vertical Forest, the first prototype of a sustainable residential building with facades covered with trees and plants: a model of metropolitan reforestation that conceives vegetation as an essential element of architecture. Vertical Forest has received many international awards, following which Boeri presented his project of Forest City in the United Nations Climate Change Conference and is now one of the major experts on climate change in the field of international architecture.
