The monumental work GaiaMotherTree, a sculpture made of brightly colored hand-knotted cotton strips, resembles a tall tree, extending right up to the ceiling of the station concourse, which is twenty meters high.

A varied program of events for adults and children, with music, meditations, workshops, talks and guided introductions to the work, will take place inside the installation.
