These bird cage designs from artist Marlon de Azambuja take inspiration from the forms of renowned museums around the world. The series of 'Museum Bird Cages' are scaled-down versions of London's Tate Modern, the São Paulo Museum of Art and the Guggenheim in NYC.

As well as being interesting to look at, the bird cages are just as functional as any other cage, with perches for the birds in the voids of the cages.

Most of the metal bird cages sprawl out horizontally, while the cage that takes after the New Museum is like a multi-level high rise with different levels for the birds inside to rest. These artful bird cage designs may be museum-inspired, but they're quite beautiful works of art on their own.
