A Housing Project For The Birds

This post from Dwell's blog shows the floating housing project that has been constructed in New York to provide a habitat for the area's bird species.

"'A Tree for Anable Basin,' created by Chico MacMurtrie of Amorphic Robot Works, a collective of artists and engineers, is an installation that MacMurtrie describes as – you guessed it – a 'condominium for birds.'"

"The island's centerpiece is a 22-foot aluminum tree, which serves as both art object and "mixed-income housing project" targeting the diverse needs of local species."
