The Future Is Now, Forested Tower “La Tour des Cedres” Coming Soon to Switzerland

Saw this over at Discovery.com today, the Swiss are building a crazy mixed residential and retail building that will also be a vertical forest too. When one pictures a future’esque world in a sci-fi story, one might picture the design for this 26-story structure called, La Tour des Cedres (or Cedar Trees Tower). Set to begin construction in 2017 — the building will be found in Lausanne, Switzerland — “will also incorporate an array of sustainable energy technologies, including a rainwater collection system, solar panels and ground source heat pumps.” This really looks amazing and it something I would expect no less from the Swiss in design. I do hope it does become a reality and is the inspiration and direction for much more to come.
