Hollow

A compendium of the world’s forests. This immersive piece of architecture, created with Zeller & Moye, brings together over 10,000 unique tree species, including petrified wood from the earliest forests that emerged over 390 million years ago; a sample from the oldest tree in the world, and some from the youngest and near-extinct species. The Douglas Fir posts that form the façade mimic the varying heights of trees in a forest canopy system. Inside, light filters through apertures in the ceiling, suggesting sunlight radiating through a forest.
