The 2014 winner: Bosco Verticale
The International Highrise Award is granted every two years in Frankfurt. In 2014, the 50,000-euro prize went to the team that designed the residential building Bosco Vertical in Milan, Italy. Including some 900 trees and bushes, the two towers conceived by Italian architect Stefano Boeri are among the greenest in the world. The prize honors architecture that combine sustainability and design.
