Crystal Palace Birdhouse

Picture 1.png

A site-specific birdhouse situated in the tree line overlooking the ruins of the Crystal Palace. Appropriating “Prince Albert’s Exhibition Model Dwellings”, the house was proposed as a model alternative family home for the growing urban industrial class'. The house was then rejected from participating in the exhibition as the committee opted not to include an exhibit that addressed social issues and was therefore situated outside the grounds of the Great Exhibition of 1851.
