A Floating Forest To Be Installed In Rotterdam, the Netherlands

When a city is below sea level, maybe it makes sense that a new city forest should float. In the Dutch city of Rotterdam, some neighborhoods aren't just below sea level - they're as much as 20 feet below, and over a third of the city surface is already covered in water.

This month, a group of artists there will start to plant trees in the harbor instead of on land. The art project, called Bobbing Forest, was inspired by a smaller sculpture in an aquarium that had miniature models of trees bobbing up and down on plastic floats that are usually used in fishing.
