An Urban Forest

A white box labeled "Unlimited Urban Woods" stands in the plaza of a modern office building in Amsterdam. Step inside, and an endless vista of trees stretches out before you.

The installation, by DUS Architects, uses one real tree and a lot of mirrors to give you the impression that you're knee deep in forest.
