Line Forest

Nury Lee


The project started with a thin border of Maasvlakte 2 in Rotterdam. Maasvlakte 2 is part of the Port of Rotterdam and artificial man-made land. In Maasvlakte 2, a space that humans cannot enter is set in order not to disturb the habitat of wild animals. The line made of wooden sticks separates the areas of animals and plants, from the areas where humans can stay.

This project imagines that a thin line separating two territories can have a thickness and becomes a space as a forest rather than a thin line. The fundamentally exclusive place that divides this and that becomes the point of touching the two worlds by embracing the two systems over a long time.
