Tree Museum by Ilkka Halso

I make plans and construct visually buildings, which protect nature from threats of pollution and what is more important, from actions of man himself.I visualize shelters, massive buildings where big ecosystems could be stored as at present. These massive building protect forests, lakes and rivers from pollution and what is more important from actions of man himself. At the same time I study different aspects of man’s relation to nature as rare unique endangered place.

While putting nature into a museum you have to take under consideration aspect of audience/ consumer. Nature becomes joyride for tourists or beautiful landscape turns into a meditative theatre show.
