They say you can get inspired from anything, anywhere and at any time. Well, this is just an extension of what I just said above as an artist named Shuchun Hsiao has come up with a birdhouse that draws inspiration from Google Maps. It’s rightly called the Google Birdhouse and is a very ‘modern way’ to bundle up the birds in urban-defined spaces.
The developer behind this concept has built this to mark the navigational landmark of flying birds. Just like we as human beings get an overall picture of the area we are searching for before zooming in on a particular location, these birdhouses can be used by the flying compatriots as destinations. The artist or the designer briefs about the birdhouse as- “Google Map had created a remarkable landmark icon, showing the sites on its street views. To search for a landmark with online Google map, we can scroll to zoom from the satellite; soon we’ll be able to wander on streets, virtually. Birds have the most real experience of Google map.
Birds can fly through the city, through streets. A birdhouse becomes their destination as Google map does“. Eye-catching, yet non-intrusive, the birdhouses make for some interesting urban “decorations”. We give a thumbs up to this rendition of Google Maps, what do you have to say about this?
