Birdhouse Project: Launching Exhibition

Last Saturday (6/7) House The House, in collaboration with U&KL, held the Birdhouse Project: Launching Exhibition at U&KL Eco-Forestry Area, Bandung. Designers, architects, creative collectives/studios, and artists participated in this project.

In addition to the birdhouse project exhibition there’s Trivia Club #2, hosted by Artiandi from House The House. Invited two designers as well as exhibitors, Mitchy Riffandie and Zanun Nurangga to talked and discussed about today’s do-it-yourself for greater and wider good. And there’s free meal for the hungry visitors by Arifin Windarman / Chef Downey and Kenny Soeriatmadja from Bin Ukon. It was yumm all around! And the performances by Swara Gerilya, DJ Melody Garcia, DJ Egga, Artiandi and the most anticipated DJ Kroto.

We’re amazed with the creativity of all the birdhouses exhibited there, perhaps some of them are not ideal houses for bird, but then again, it’s always nice to be different or yet, playful (to us humans at least :p).

As we mentioned before in our previous post, we’re participated too. We named our bird house “Rue”, it has no special meaning, we just love the name because it’s simple like the house itself. We loved to see the interaction between Rue and the visitors, especially the kids.

All of the birdhouse are still displayed at U&KL Store and available for purchased.

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!
