ARENA FOR A TREE IN VENICE

An ‘ark’ in the Arsenale

For the very first time, the Arena for a Tree by Klaus Littmann can be seen on a pontoon in Venice. From a distance, the large ‘hull’ looks like an upside-down dome or a giant walnut shell with a sapling sprouting from it. Seen close-up, it reveals itself as architecture, sculpture and stage rolled into one. Mimicking the growth rings of a tree, its horizontal structure can seat up to fifty people in three tiers.
