365Project- Architecture

My first thought was a building that people go into but why not this wooden sculpture? They fit the description given by the Encyclopedia Britannica-“ Architecture, the art and technique of designing and building, as distinguished from the skills associated with construction.“

This is MaMa Loumari created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo and volunteers at Bernheim Forest and Arboretum . She is pregnant and taking a rest while her other two children are playing in the forest. There has been such an influx of visitors some not being respectful which brought about this sign. Thought the artist encouraged children playing on MaMa I sure it was not anticipated Sooo many along with adults would be climbing all over her. They are predicted to last three years depending on the weather but with the impact of so many bodies they might not be here that long. 🙁
