London’s Newest Real Estate: Birdhouses

The Secret Garden Project is underway with the building of hundreds of birdhouses along London streets in a sculptural endeavor known as the Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven by London Fieldworks. We think that, not only are these houses an interesting sight to see, they are a wonderful accommodation for our winged friends.

The habitats are also meant to house bugs, nearly all of which we would much rather have in a tree than scrambling around our offices. The housing sculptures reflect their surrounding human-sized buildings, and offer various sized homes for various sized creatures.

We would love to see what one of these looks like with a full house! We think these houses are a great way to promote urban biodiversity and show the importance of maintaining suitable livings spaces for wild animals everywhere, let alone in major cities.
