Shu-Chun Hsiao’s Google Bird Houses Point Out the Dwellings of Feathered Friends
Posted By Helen Morgan On February 12, 2013 @ 3:38 pm In Animals,Green Products | No Comments
These playful Google birdhouses  by Shu-Chun Hsiao  re-imagine typical bird dwellings as points of interest in urban locations. Inspired by the Google Maps  landmark icon, Hsiao’s modern bird houses  mark the places where birds go to rest.
Here at Inhabitat we love seeing innovative new digs for our feathered friends – from pixellated tree houses  to adobe tile abodes . Whereas some designs seek to blend into the environment, Shu-Chun Hsiao ‘s Google Birdhouses do the opposite. They tag the little feathered creature’s homes, identifying the places they roost so that passersby can take note and keep an eye out for them.
