Urban Treehouse Uses 150 Trees To Protect Residents From Noise And Pollution Luciano Pia, an architect in Italy, has a beautiful vision for how people and nature can live together even in a thoroughly urban landscape. 25 Verde, an apartment complex he designed in Turin, Italy, is a woven 5-story mix of lush trees and steel girders that let urban residents feel like they live in a giant urban tree-house. Every step in the building’s design was taken with natural integration in mind. The organic and asymmetric shape of its terraces allow potted trees to “sprout” out from the building at random intervals. The ponds in the courtyard provide residents with a refreshing place to relax in the summer, and the 150 deciduous trees, which lose their trees in the winter, allow light to filter in to the building during the darker months. The building helps keep the city’s air cleaner and isolates the residents from the urban sounds and smells surrounding them.The building, which was completed in 2012, is located at Via Chabrera 25 in Turin, Italy – you can even check it out on Google Maps‘ street view!

While living in an urban environment has many benefits, you’re often subject to noise, pollution, and lack of green space. This five-storey apartment building by Luciano Pia minimizes these disadvantages by cloaking the structure in a beautiful potted forest. Located in Turin, Italy, the facade also features silhouetted metal trees that foster the look and feel of a magnificent tree house.

Phoenix House at the Earthship Biotecture community in Taos, New Mexico. This home is 100% self-sustaining, completely off-the-grid, and only costs about $100 per year in utilities! Made out of 100% recycled and reclaimed materials, the Phoenix gets its electricity from solar and wind. It gets its water from rain and snow, its heat from the sun and earth, and food from it’s garden, fish pond, greenhouse inside the building.

Masjed Jameh | Most ancient mosque in Isfahan, Iran. It's serene and cool inside. All you hear are echos. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2012. This is one of the oldest mosques still standing in Iran. The origins of this mosque lie in the 8th century, but it burnt down and was rebuilt again in the 11th century and went through remodeling many times. As a result it has rooms built in different architectural styles, so now the mosque represents a condensed history of the Iranian Architecture.
