Crystal Palace Birdhouse

A site specific bird house 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 rejected from participating in the exhibition as the committee were unwilling to include an exhibit that overtly addressed social issues and was therefore situated just outside the grounds of the Great Exhibition of 1851.
