Description

We imagine forests as spaces for exploration and discovery, spaces for contemplation, spaces where we, as humans, are insignificant. Forests offer nature at her best, thriving with no intervention. When we bring a small fraction of the wild into our urban environment, we look for the benefits of the forest but in a tamed and manicured design. We ask our domesticated urban forests to survive in potted format. Urban forests are part of the life-cycle of the city – they are subject to the lifespan of development rather than their natural lifespan.

At Delisle-St. Clair Parkette, superkül reflects on the role of the urban forest, both as infrastructure offering relief to the urbanity that surrounds them, and as spaces in which we, as animals, can regain our senses of adventure and playfulness. We ask the question – what if this bit of forest wasn’t so contained?
