Information is transmitted by an endless structure designed as a hybrid of a forest and an arcade. The Info Point, a hybrid of the above, is no longer a vessel but a transmitter as it continuously repeats itself through the city. The result is an Information Forest, a contemporary ruin between past and present. The process includes the trimming of the infinite structure (gardening) in order to formulate the final object.
