Arbor, a temporary art installation by Oakland-based artist and architect Adam Marcus, was on view at King Plaza for a year until Apr 2022. The immersive sculptural installation was a data spatialization of the urban forest of Palo Alto. Arbor used the database of over 45,000 public trees in the City’s Open Data Portal as the basis for a three-dimensional map of one aspect of the city's ecology.
