Gitta Gschwendtner - Animal Wall

Along the same lines as my earlier post on Gregory Kenny's Tree birdhouse - I spotted Gitta Gschwendtner's Animal Wall over at Dezeen. The BBC has a nice write up on the project, which integrates nesting boxes for birds and bats in Cardiff Bay's Century Wharf. Cardiff Bay has undergone a lot of development recently, with around 1000 new apartments and houses going up. Gitta's Animal Wall incorporates 1000 nesting boxes to compliment the human development. Whether or not wildlife will move in remains to be seen!
