COPACUL CARE CANTA

Copacul care canta este o sculptura muzicala animata de vant care reproduce un copac care se apleaca in bataia vantului si este amplasata pe dealul Crown Point care strajuieste orasul Burnley din Lancashire, Anglia.

Finalizat in anul 2006, acesta face parte dintr-o serie de patru sculpturi in cadrul proiectului de arte si regenerare Panopticons, proiect sustinut de catre East Lancashire Environmental Arts Network (ELEAN). Proiectul a fost gandit sa produca o serie de lucrari simbol pentru secolul 21 sau Panopticoane (structuri care asigura o vedere panoramica, cuprinzatoare), in zona de est a regiunii Lancashire, ca simboluri ale renasterii/revigorarii acestei zone.

Proiectat de arhitectii Mike Tonkin si Anna Liu de la Tonkin Liu, Copacul care canta este o structura de metal avand 3 metri inaltime, alcatuita din tevi metalice zincate termic de diferite lungimi si diametre care aduna energia vantului pentru a produce un sunet coral penetrant, usor discordant, care acopera mai multe octave. Unele tevi au doar rol structural sau vizual in timp ce altele au fost taiate astfel incat la trecerea vantului sa scoate anumite sunete.  Calitatile de armonica ale copacului cantator au fost obtinute in urma acordarii tevilor in functie de lungimea acestora prin realizarea unor slituri corespunzatoare in partea de jos a fiecarei tevi.

In anul 2007, sculptura a castigat Premiul National pentru excelenta in arhitectura al Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
