Briefcase Observatory, Briefcase
The installation grows around a tree contained by three bench modules from the system called « Sitting under the tree » that interact with 3 concave concrete surfaces placed freely upon the square ́s floor. The design of the 800kg plates meant that they swivelled and rocked with considerable ease – proving to be very popular with visitors.
The Observatory, a place for rest and contemplation, invites the user to, lay back, look up and take in their surroundings, such a rare action in everyday life.
