The ManyTree (2022)
The ManyTree (2022) is an urban prototype installation that questions the conventional approaches to how we integrate greenery into our cities.
The benefits of trees and plants for our cities, and for us as humans, are well known. But urban environments are often hostile to natural elements, and bringing trees and plants to these spaces faces challenges physically, temporally and organisationally. The ManyTree subverts these constraints and creates a new typology - a 'pop-up' tree - that can be deployed to bring instant greenery and redefine the character of the spaces it occupies, while inviting those around it to reconsider the relationship between our cities and the green spaces within them.
The ManyTree was exhibited at The New Block in Strijp-S in Eindhoven (Netherlands) until November 2022
