Going green never looked this good

A group of architects wanted to figure out a way to implement more nature into a sprawling Parisian cityscape, so they came up with this unique residential building. It is stunning to look at, and aside from its dense vegetation, the structure will run completely on renewable energy.

The concept of the design was to create "a floating village in the middle of a forest"—a building lined with a thousand trees, complete with a park, pedestrian walkways, restaurants, shops and small single-family homes and apartments. Construction is planned to begin in the next two years and finish in 2022.
