Dom Arquitectura  was so sad to see the neighborhood sparrows disappear after their popular hang out – a Barcelona wall full of holes – was renovated, that the design team decided to install a series of brightly colored urban nests when the renovation was complete. In order to attach the nests to the wall, it was necessary for Mikel Elorduy, Blaca Elorduy, and Pablo Serrano to rappel off the side of it – but it was worth it because the sparrows came back! Now the Barrio de Gracia  has a charming series of tiny yellow, green, and brown nests and some pretty birds to match.
