Morrie & Oslo's Birdhouse

Here’s a little news to brighten up your day, The Birdhouse Project is headed your way this weekend! We’re pretty excited participating for this. We already did some research before and to make this designing things a bit easier, we imagining ourselves as birds. Not the big ferocious type of birds, but the more we-used-to-see-them-around-us kinda birds. In which kind of house does we, us-bird, will want to take a peek and comfortably proclaimed our home-sweet-home?

As far as the designing works, both of us already agreed on some details and we can imagined it on a big picture. And when it’s finally done, it turns out as good as we hoped it would be. (We sincerely thanking Metronome for the job well done on the woodworking matter, thanks guys!)

 

“In a condition where many stakeholders took too much power in shaping and erasing open green spaces and property construction in activity centrals, as well as in Bandung, we envision Bird House Project to play such simple role in stitching those two aspects. It’s a humble celebration on delving into creative potentials, either individually and collectively, on such small issue: a settlement for city birds to be placed practically anywhere. A contributing instrument for designed environments intended to be lived not merely for humans.”

 

The hoopla will be happening at U&KL ECO-FORESTRY AREA Jalan Gudang Selatan No.88, Bandung from 11am – 7pm this July 6th, 2013. Find out everything you’ll need to know right here. See you there!

Field Trip Pasar Burung Sukahaji

The Bird House Project is in few weeks. We’re pretty excited to brainstorm the ideas for our birdhouse. We already have a design in our head and we’re hoping it would be a decent one for our feathery friends. And for this, both of us attempted to learn the skills to make ourself a bit used to with woodworking so that we could make the birdhouse by ourself (finger-crossed!).

We’ve done a bit of further research (or in our terms, field trip :p) to Pasar Burung Sukahaji. As we enters, the sound of a hundred different birds assail the senses. It was the most charming little market full of twittering, fluffy, and cheeping birdies. They were all so adorable and has such lovely colors. As we sightseeing, they’re all chirping from every side of the market. It was fun!

Bird House Project: Site Visit

“A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.”
-Chinese Proverb

 

Birds are fairly self-sufficient creatures really. Some kind of birds able to migrate across the country with little more than a few flaps of their wings, while some of the domestic ones prefer to hop along every trees and grass in our backyard for a bite. And just like us, our birdie buddies would appreciate a comfortable bed to crash in now and then.

Right at the middle of the year, when the sky is clear, the sun is shinning brightly and our feathered friends are chirping from the nearest trees, we got an invitation to participate in Bird House Project. This is an initiative project, launched by House The House and collaboration with U&KL. The event launching exhibition will be on July 6, 2013, at U&KL Eco Forestry Area, Jalan Gudang Selatan no 88 Bandung.

 

“A small celebration of the city’s design and creative scene by the means of its interaction to the city environment, with designed bird houses as a medium, inviting numbers of architects, designers, and artists from broad Indonesian creative base. Along with the notion of exceeding development within our urban surroundings, Bird House Project projected to remind these tomorrow’s people on the importance of constructing and planning such humble habitat placed not solely for humans’ use.”

 

Below are some of the photos of participant meeting and technical briefing, last Friday when we visited the site.
