Famed Italian architect Stefano Boeri is responsible for many of the world’s architectural projects. With his independently organized studio, Stefano Boeri Architetti, he has designed and developed a number of forward thinking buildings and architectural designs. Their works have appeared in China, the United States, Egypt, and many other nations. Some of these include the Nanjing Green Towers in Jiangsu, China, as well as the first “Vertical Forest” in Boeri’s hometown of Milan, Italy. The architectural phenomenon is comprised of two towers with a combined 2,500 cascading plants, which run all down its sides. This theme of blending nature and urbanism is a motif that regularly comes up in Boeri’s work. However, the architectural studio is taking this premise to new heights in their latest project, which is a smart forest city located in Mexico. The city features urban innovation that has never been seen at this level, the design of which will include independent energy sourcing, self-sustaining food production, and more. If it proves to be a success, the city will likely attract thousands of yearly visitors eager to visit the best all inclusive resorts in Cancun for families. 

“Smart Forest City” Will Be the First of Its Kind in Mexico

Boeri’s city will reportedly feature some incredibly innovative technology. The goal of the project is to have an entirely self-sufficient city that produces zero carbon emissions. Additionally, the city will grow all of its own food, filter and recycle water, and use renewable energy sources in order to generate electricity. The techniques utilized to make this happen have existed for some time, but this will be the first occasion where a city is built from the ground up utilizing all of them. Being the first city of its kind in North America, tourists will likely flock from all over the continent to visit Mexico, specifically the best all inclusive resorts in Cancun for families that will be housed in the smart city. Once they’re there, they will also be able to utilize an advanced public transportation system comprised of “internal electric and semi automatic mobility” … whatever that means.

“Self-Sustaining” Means Everything Will Be In-House

Food will be grown on the outer edge of the city, in a series of crop rings. Although it has yet to be revealed exactly what crops will be grown, botanist Laura Garrett has revealed that the city will contain over 7.5 million plants, 260,000 of which will be trees. These trees – along with other assorted shrubs, green roofs, and gardens – will be largely responsible for absorbing any and all carbon emissions produced. Water will be brought in through a maritime piping system, and treated in a desalination facility in order to provide water to residents. Electricity will be derived from solar panels – the jury is still out on whether or not hydroelectricity or wind power will be utilized.

Visitors will surely come from all over to see this technological marvel, as well as stay in the best all inclusive resorts in Cancun for families. Once in the city, there will be a variety of public parks to enjoy, as well as technological research and innovation firms to investigate. Boeri’s team is dedicated to not only making innovations, but also fostering the growth of new ones. Stefano Boeri Architetti has already revealed plans for more smart cities, so soon we may see some within the United States as well.
