  • Come make a personal connection to the thing that sustains us all: our planet! Forest Net(work) is a pavilion helping us to create a more sustainable world through reforestation.

    Planting new trees is one of the most effective ways to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere and fight climate change. Visitors will have the opportunity to take freshly planted tree saplings back to their communities. This hands-on activity will be supported by local volunteer organizations nurturing connections that will last far beyond this year’s festival and will make an impact on the planet for generations to come.

    Inspired by the recent executive order to strengthen America’s forests and combat global deforestation signed by President Joe Biden in Seattle, the installation “Forest Net (Work)” focuses on the intimate bond between humans and nature. The physical form of the structure references the mountains that surround us and represents the layers of a forest (understory and tree canopy). The “net” above is comprised of saplings, intended to be taken away by design festival attendees and planted to help re-forest our region, creating a personal connection to the earth that will make an impact far beyond the 2022 Seattle Design Festival.
