The installation of the arboreal is an educational platform that provides interventions for wide array of interaction so kids can understand the importance of sustainability.  Kids can explore subjects that vary from mobility to cooking.

The wooden sculpture, which can be occupied, is inspired by trees with exposed roots to mimic a “magical forest where the imagination can run free”. The sculpture is composed of slides, stairs, and nets to encourage activity and movement for the visitors to use their motor skills to move with ease in the spaces.

The goal is to apply the knowledge they learn to carry our their lives as they grow into responsible adults to make for a better tomorrow.
