In every city, nature has its marks in form of living trees and, very often, in form of a quarter where the streets have tree names… also in Porto. Aino-Astrid Gaedtke plays with the other way round: she shows the city’s imprint on nature and maps the corresponding part of Porto on leafs. Streets become nerves of a poplar leaf, including “Praça dos Álamos”, the city's square of the poplars.
