Entry Description

This temporary bamboo structure, entitled “Treeplets”, attempts to mimic the splendor and rarity of identical triplets in the form of three random trees, hence the word play of the title. The trees are joined together through their canopies, enabling the creation of natural archways and provide the structural solidity of the whole installation. It is a public space intervention which aims at activating the outdoor activities of the local community and to promote the traditional knowledge and techniques of scaffolding with contemporary design concepts.
