China wants to build a 'forest city' to tackle air pollution -- here's how it could look

A city covered in one million plants and 40,000 trees will soon be built in China.

The “forest city” as it’s been called is planned to be built in Liuzhou, in southern China by 2020.

The idea is that the plants and trees would absorb tons of CO2 and pollutants.

It was designed by Italian architect Stefani Boeri, who is also behind the “Vertical Forest” tower in Milan.
