36-Story Apartment Tower To Be Covered With Trees

November 18, 2015


This is the "La Tour des Cedres" (The Tower of Cedars) to be built in Lausanne, Switzerland. In addition to its human residents, the 384-foot tall (117m) apartment complex will house over 100 trees, 6,000 shrubs and 18,000 plants. My apartment building? It houses over 60 withering houseplants, 40 f***ing weirdos, at least two witches, and a suspected serial killer. If I wasn't so terrified to ever leave my apartment I would move.

The plants will protect the apartments inside from harsh winds, dust, and noise pollution, and will offer a more pleasant view of the city.

The plants will not, however, protect the apartments from getting their balconies constantly covered in bird shit. Speaking of -- raise your hand if you've ever had a bird shit on you. Now everybody look around. The people with their hands raised have what is commonly known as 'bad luck'. Or birds hate them. A bird tried pooping on me once but I was wearing a hat so it kind of ricocheted off the bill and all over my girlfriend's shoulder and arm. I laughed so hard she broke up with me, true story.

Keep going for a bunch more renderings.







Thanks to Allyson, who just wants to live in a treehouse. Amen to that.
