FOR FOREST at Wörthersee stadium in Klagenfurt
Inspired by The Unending Attraction of Nature, a drawing by Austrian artist and architect Max Peintner (b. 1937) that Littmann discovered almost thirty years ago, FOR FOREST finally brings that vision to life.
Overseen by Enea Landscape Architecture, the forest is composed of a diverse range of species such as silver birch, alder, aspen, white willow, hornbeam, field maple and common oak. Once transplanted the forest will take on a life of its own, changing colours as the season turns and attract wildlife.
Seating up to 30,000 spectators, the surroundings of Wörthersee Stadium dramatically shapes the visitor experience. From 10am until 10pm daily, audiences will experience a unique panorama of trees, day and night, under natural light or by floodlight. Encountering FOR FOREST will trigger a multiplicity of responses and emotions, and depending on the time of day or night the trees will form an ever-changing landscape. This captivating panorama will pave the way for a whole new perspective and understanding of forests.
FOR FOREST is the trigger for a vibrant programme of related satellite events and exhibitions across the city of Klagenfurt.
FOR FOREST was made possible thanks to Swiss private supporters, contributions in kind, as well as tree sponsorship.
That was us.
