RADIUS is pleased to invite you to the launch and presentation of their first publication, SIXTEEN TREES OF DELFT, by artist Alice Ladenburg. Join us on Sunday the 16th of April 2023 for a series of presentations, followed by informal discussion and drinks reception.
The publication focuses on sixteen trees in Delft, which are presented through geographical, botanical and historical information, archival photographs, observational writing, ink drawings, scientific data and images created using laser scans.
