7,000 Pines

2005

7,000 Pines is Interboro’s entry to the “Hellenikon Metropolitan Park” competition, which asked entrants to design a park on a large piece of prime land close to Athens, ten kilometres from the Acropole and very close to the Saronic Coast that became available after the transfer of Athens airport from Hellenikon to the Mesogeia plain in 2001.

Taking a cue from Joseph Beuys’ “7,000 Oaks,” 7,000 Pines is a strategy for tree-planting on a massive scale that attempts to re-render history by using traces of Hellenikon’s past as a starting point.
