The Tree

Sweet Farm is an 85-acre private park in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. The project comprises a series of architectural, sculptural, and landscape interventions along a network of natural paths through a varied natural landscape. Interventions such as a forest dining area, a woodshed, tower, mink cage garden and belvedere enhance and point to natural and man made features and the sensuous aspects of the site – heightening the visitor’s experience of the existing landscape – as if one were seeing them for the first time. Interventions are built incrementally with material harvested from or found on the site. Sweet Farm has been under construction since 1994.
