Let us introduce you to the greener future of urbanized landscapes – vertical forests in Nanjing, China. These two forest-like buildings are called Nanjing Towers, and they’ll produce 132 pounds (60kg) of oxygen every day once they’re completed in 2018. With environmental concerns being a huge problem in overpopulated and overpolluted China, innovative projects like this are – literally – a much-needed breath of fresh air.

These towers in Nanjing, China will contain vertical forests that will house 2,500 shrubs and over 1,000 trees
