‘For Forest’ – Football Stadium in Austria Transformed into Forest of 300 Trees

Due to climate change and deforestation project called “For Forest” has a goal to make people question the unknown future of nature. “By enclosing an entire forest within the stadium, the project seeks to remind us that nature, which we so often take for granted, may someday only be found in specially designated spaces, as is already the case with animals in zoos.” ‘For Forest’ is actually a project by Klaus Littmann that brings to life a dystopian drawing by Austrian artist and architect Max Peintner “The Unending Attraction of Nature.” The Wörthersee football stadium in Klagenfurt, Austria, has been carefully transformed with almost 300 trees and it will be open on the 8th of September 2019. The forest contains a diverse range of species including silver birch, alder, aspen, white willow, hornbeam, field maple, and common oak, and all of them will grow freely on their own while attracting the wildlife to the most beautiful place in the city. The public art installation will end on October 27th, 2019, and forest will be replanted on public site close to the stadium.

Due to climate change and deforestation project called „For Forest“ ask us about the future of Nature.

Will forests be only seen in specially designated spaces, like the case of some endangered animals in zoos?
