A Birdhouse Inspired by a Modern Masterpiece

September 27, 2012

I've never had a bird feeder before and that's probably because I live in an urban flat without a backyard. But that's all changing now that I've spotted this Danish bird feeder—I'm already thinking about ways I can drill a hole in the back patio stairs just so I can install it and beckon the local pigeons.

Inspired by Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona pavilion, Dutch designer Monique Engelund created the sculptural Barcelona Bird Feeder out of durable acacia wood sustainably harvested from European forests; reflecting pool included.
