The World’s Tallest Manmade Structure Will Be Overrun By Plants
The Mile is like a vertical Central Park, twisted and turned 90 degrees
We seem to be in a golden era of innovative park design. Aside from utilizing abandoned infrastructure in an innovative way, like with the Lowline and the Highline in New York City, architects like Carlo Ratti Associati are putting their spatial and geometric imaginations to the test. Their creation, called The Mile, could be the tallest manmade construction in the world—and also the greenest, with all its 1,609 meters of height covered in plants.
