Drawing equally on the tools of architecture, visual art, performance and new media, Diller Scofidio + Renfro are a trans-disciplinary practice whose projects consider space not as a neutral canvas, but a complex script, imbued with invisible conventions and histories. Arbores Laetae (Joyful Trees), playfully reinvents the tradition of the public park to propose a new model for green space in the urban context. Situated on a brownfield site adjacent to a key arterial route into the city centre, the work consists of seventeen hornbeams formally planted in grid pattern to create a small wooden grove. At the heart of this landscape, three slowly rotating trees periodically disrupt the formality of the frid with their diagonal dance.
