Project Description

The Arborline learning centre uses the rail as a tool to remediate the impact of deforestation through the distribution of tree samplings and the building. The building protrudes through the landscape allowing the saplings held on a vertical scaffolding system to be seen at all site lines, highlighting the trees as a beacon to heal and overturn its industrial environmental trauma.
