First Vertical Forests to Be Planted in Nanjing

A group of Italian architects is set to construct the first vertical forest in Nanjing.

The vertical forest design was an innovation of an Italian architecture firm, Stefano Boeri Architetti. The Nanjing Green Towers are two multi-rise buildings that will be constructed in the Pukuo District.

Boeri made similar designs in Milan, Italy, and Lausanne, Switzerland.

Vertical forests are buildings that are designed to house thousands of trees and shrubs on the structures’ exterior. The design that was made for the Nanjing Green Towers will have trees on the buildings’ uppermost deck.
The Nanjing Green Towers will be completed by 2018. Future projects will be implemented in other Chinese cities such as Shijiazhuang, Liuzhou, Guizhou, Shanghai and Chongqing.

The eco-friendly project set in Guizhou will be a forest hotel located in 400 acres of rolling hills. The hotel will have a gym, a lounge, bar, a restaurant and a VIP area.

Stefano Boeri Architetti is bringing the vertical forest concept popularized in Milan to Nanjing, China with the Nanjing Towers. The two green towers could provide the city with a breath of fresh air, producing around 132 pounds of oxygen every day as they absorb carbon dioxide. They’ll accomplish this air-cleaning feat with 1,100 flourishing trees from 23 local species and 2,500 cascading shrubs and plants.

The two towers at 656 feet and 354 feet tall will rise above the Nanjing Pukou District, which Stefano Boeri Architetti’s press release describes as an area that will likely lead modernization efforts in the south of China’s Jiangsu province and help develop a Yangtze River economic zone. Nanjing Yang Zi State-owned Investment Group Company Limited is promoting the towers and is listed by Stefano Boeri Architetti as an investor in the project.


The taller tower will hold offices, a museum, a green architecture school, and a rooftop club. The second tower will host a 247-room Hyatt hotel and rooftop swimming pool. A podium 65 feet high will include shops, restaurants, and a conference hall. Balconies on the buildings will allow inhabitants to get up close to the nature thriving on the building facades.

600 tall trees and 500 medium-sized trees will grow on the towers, and Stefano Boeri Architetti says the trees and cascading plants will help regenerate biodiversity in the area.




Aston Martin Residences has released a new set of renderings for their building whose design was inspired by an Aston Martin DB11. They are making it clear that this partnership is in fact a complete partnership, not just a licensing agreement.


The interiors of the building will have the same lighting scheme, design and feel of the interiors of their signature hand-made car. 

The same jeweler who places the Aston Martin logo on the hood of the cars will be the jeweler who places the unit numbers on the residence doors. 




G&G purchased the Vulcan, one of 24 in the world, and will keep it in the three-story sales center. Other features include a custom-made carbon fiber desk, leather door handles and Eames chairs. Aston Martin will have its hands on everything from the leather stitching to “how we design the ramp that goes up to the parking,” Marek Reichman, executive vice president and chief creative officer of Aston Martin, said. The development team declined to provide a buildout cost for the sales center.

Units range from $600,000 to $50 million for the penthouse, and from 700 square feet to 19,000 square feet.

Embraer 1000E Hollywood Airship


For many, private jet ownership is an opportunity to flaunt their individuality. This is especially true in the rarefied airspace of the ultra-large executive jet. As the biggest and the baddest private jets flying, owners of these converted airliners want to make their mega-dollar planes stand out from the crowd.
This brings us to Embraer.

The Brazilian jet maker has long been a fan of highly stylized theme interiors. Last summer, Embraer introduced the far east-inspired Kyoto Airship and its stunning skylights. Later in the year, the company rolled out the Brazilian Rancher-meets-Texas-oil-tycoon themed the Skyranch One. 

In its latest effort, Embraer offers its take on the glamour of Tinseltown in the 1930s with the Hollywood Airship. 

“The Hollywood is steeped in MGM style, with a nod to film greats of the black and white movie era.,” the company wrote in its press kit. “Embraer pushes the design envelope in private aviation with the introduction of a chic shuttle aircraft that celebrates the beauty and affluence of the past while embracing the advanced technology of the future.”

Due to the highly bespoke nature of the business, Embraer’s customers can choose to adopt the whole package or simply a few select elements of the concept. 

Here’s a closer look at the Embraer Lineage 1000E Hollywood Airship.

The Hollywood Airship interior is designed for Embraer’s flagship Lineage 1000E executive jet. 

The 1000E has room for 13 to 19 passengers, with a range of nearly 5,300 miles. It’s based on the company’s E190 airliner.


Formal dining for six is available in the VIP Crystal Room near the back of the plane.

So how much does all of this art deco fabulousness cost? 

A new Embraer Lineage 1000E can be had for $53 million.

 But for an additional $30 million, your Lineage can shine brighter than Hollywood’s biggest stars.

Business clients can conduct meetings in this spacious lounge while…

The Manor, built in 1988 by entertainment royalty Aaron and Candy Spelling, is the grandest private residence in Los Angeles. Proudly positioned, its nearly five acres of rare flat land borders the LA Country Club. The Manor blends visionary design, bespoke attention to detail, and classical elegance. A winding driveway leads to a circular motor court, fountain and space for 100 cars. The entry’s double staircase with dramatic 30-foot ceilings is reminiscent of Old Hollywood. Italian limestone enwraps the sumptuous living spaces. In addition to 7 BR suites and 7 staff bedrooms, there is a grand formal living room, projection room, bar, family room, library, office, service wing, billiards room, game room, two lane bowling alley, wine cellar and tasting room, catering kitchen, gym and a fully equipped beauty salon including masseuse and tanning rooms. The current owners spared no expense in 2011 to renovate and update the estate. This is a rare property, and beckons a discerning buyer.

Everybody is Everybody ….. as the song goes

Everybody Have to start Somewhere, Somehow, Someway, Someday & Sometime ……

When I was young

It seemed that life was wonderful

🦋A miracle, Oh it was beautiful, Magical and all the birds 🐦 in the trees🌲 They could sing so happily, So joyfully ……


Adriana Sassoon in São Paulo 1970’s 
Inspiration comes from out of this world I believe. 

I’m just a vehicle who can process the information and translate to material objects. 

Everything that exists in the world has been created by someone, somewhere, somehow by divine insight. 

I am grateful to see the world and my life the way I see it. 

I try to see beauty everywhere. 

If I can make the world a better place I will try not only to make my life better, but the lives of the ones who come across my path.
