Avian abodes like the Barcelona Bird Pavilion allow designers and artists alike to demonstrate their architectural prowess without needing a limitless budget and a team of willing construction workers. Instead, with minimal materials, an avid imagination and time, birdhouses offer an easy way out without compromising the creativity, skill and talent of the individual making them.
In this case, the Barcelona Bird Pavilion is the brainchild of Monique Engelund. Created for Menu, this modern style abode pays tribute to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, a famous German architect. As both a feeder and bird bath, the Barcelona Bird Pavilion is quite spacious for a mini architectural masterpiece. It is made out of acacia wood and the pool-like basin can be separated from the table so as to be easily cleaned and refilled.
