Gallery: Menthol Architects’ Tower for Swifts Provides a Safe Nesting P...


Europe’s swift population is rapidly declining due to the loss of nesting sites caused by the demolition and renovation of buildings. This is because modern, newly insulated buildings don’t offer adequate spaces where birds can nest. As part of a protective campaign to address this issue, Menthol Architects has created a Tower for Swifts. The 8-meter-high free-standing structure provides birds with a safe place to nest in Warsaw, Poland.

    I would love to know more about your swift tower. I\\\’m from Montreal Canada, and our Swift populations has dropped 50% the last 10 years. I work for the city of Montreal, and this seems to be a interesting project.
    You can reach me at fauconbleu65@hotmail.
    I would love to know if you have started to have any nesting, as well how much is this structure, etc.
