The Project

A highly visible temporary public art installation consisting of seventeen hornbeam trees located in the heart of Liverpool.

The art piece designed by architects Diller, Scofido and Renfro, re-examines the traditional idea of public park space by choosing to animate, in a mechanised way, those landscape elements that we expect to be stable and on ‘terra firma’.

The project required landscaping of a 740m2 grass verge area and the installation of three 4m diameter concrete pre-cast rings supported on a foundation slab, which in turn housed mechanical turntables that rotated the steel tree planters.

Associated electrical and lighting installations were also required.
