Famous for their out of the ordinary works, the acclaimed Japanese design and architectural practice Nendo have realised this collective birdhouse intended for use by birds and humans alike. Designed for Momofuku Ando Center – ‘a facility devoted to promoting and increasing access to nature activities’ – the unique structure formally echoes the archetypal gabled house and is composed of 78 enclosures provided for birds to nest in as well as an adjacent one-room observation area.
