Tree Harp is an urban experiment attempting to re-link the human body and nature. Trees are treated as a functional object to provide shade and act as an air filter in the urban city, but never harmoniously in a dialogue with us. Aaam Architects designed a free-form structure of colourful nylon ropes with metal bells that turns and wraps the tree forming an intimate space around. It can be seen as a small pavilion, celebrating nature or as a musical playground when one plays with the ropes or compose their own tunes under the tree. Tree Harp is an interactive installation that encourages multidimensional activities and invites participation from all walks of life.

Tree Harp was first commissioned for the Bras Basah.Bugis Urban Interventions, a programme of Singapore Design Week 2019, co-presented by National Heritage Board and DesignSingapore Council.
