100 Acres, the sculpture park in Indianapolis, includes the structure Chop Stick, designed by Stockholm-based experimental architecture firm visiondivision.

Utilizing a 6-ton, 100-foot long tree that had been found near Anderson, IN, the multi-functional installation consists of an integrated picnic area, swing set and an informational kiosk. Slices of the trunk have been made into table tops, thick branches have been cut into stools, and the bark has become shingles on the pavilion.
