This is a multi-species house shared between humans and black-capped chickadees. The design explores how people and birds can live together in a way that does not negatively affect each other. Natural habitats for the birds are created by weaving vegetation in between contoured wood strips that run along the central corridor. The same technique is used in order to provide storage and shelving space for human residents.
Design, research, and prototyping with the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape (SAPL), University of Calgary, including Jason Johnson, Ryan Cook. 2014.
