Forestal Installation by Pezo Von Ellrichshausen Architects

Forestal 1

In this particular installation by Pezo Von Ellrichshausen Architects that creates a symbolic forest from the material created from a real forest, 27,5000 sheets of office paper and 120,000 steel staples were used in the construction Forestal.

'The paper not only resembles bark in its texture, more immediately recalling what the installation refers to in name and form, it asks the visitor if one replaces the other.
Does paper justify the destruction of trees? Do we see them as one and the same in our minds, just in different states, like water and ice?
Surely more questions arise from these few images, testament to the power of an apprently simple idea layered with meaning.'
