Treehenge, Iota, 2008

“A typical cross-section of the trunk of a tree reveals concentric layers of cell types, each with a distinct and vital purpose. Translating each of these layers, the bark, cambium and heartwood, for example, into walls, hallways, benches results in both a mazelike structure for play and a central gathering place for storytelling. We were also curious about what we could build using only a single tree harvested at the end of its natural life.”
by IOTA for the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum’s 2008 “Tree-ology” Summer Exhibition, inspirational for the natural playground.
