Xylem, The Heart of The Tree

Named to evoke the vital internal layers of a tree’s living structure, Xylem, designed by celebrated architect Francis Kéré, is a place where visitors may gather to converse, contemplate the views of the aspen and cottonwood trees near the bank of the creek, or sit and meditate in solitude. This film follows the making of this sculpture.
