„Scala Naturae. The Ladder of Being“

The project is called „Scala Naturae. The Ladder of Being“ and it refers to a concept first introduced by Aristoteles from his „Historia Animalium“ This great chain of being makes reference to a system of order, arrangement and classification and serves as a starting point for the study of one essential component of our landscape architectural practice: the tree. Each of the nine elements presented explores a different layer of meaning, ranging from weather, sound, illusion, manufacture, furniture, smell and construction techniques, all revolving around the topic of the tree.
