The Memorial for the Barcaldine Tree of Knowledge by m3architecture in Queensland, Australia is a breathtaking structure that also seems a little ironic. The wooden structure surrounds the remains of a dead tree with 18 meter-high hanging timber batons that mimic the shape of the tree’s canopy as it appeared in 1891.

The Barcaldine Tree of Knowledge by m3architecture is a memorial that marks the site where the Australian Labour party was founded in 1891. The design is environmentally sustainable but it still seems strange to surround a dead tree with more pieces of other dead trees to imitate a live one.
