Singing Ringing

Created by architects Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu of Tonkin Liu, the Singing Ringing Tree was designed to take advantage of the perpetual winds buffeting the hills of Lancashire, England.

Sounds like choral humming to me, but I have a bad ear. Take a listen for yourself in the video below.

But wait there’s more. The tree was one of four structures commissioned by a progressive public art program. The development of the project, the construction of the tree and the official launch of this permanent installation are covered in the following profile.
