Two hundred and fifty bespoke boxes for birds and bugs form a sculptural installation called “The Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven”. How’s that for communal living? It’s a part of the London Secret Garden Project and is a reference to utopian imagery – a show home for birds and bugs in a wooded environment, designed by London Fieldworks. We came across it by chance walking through Cremorne Gardens, which in an area of mixed housing where quaint Georgian town houses stand alongside the gritty 60’s World End housing estate. The sculpture fits that eclectic mix, and one hopes the birds and bugs did fly in spontaneously and take up residence in the Tree of Heaven.
This is my second take of the Weekly Photo Challenge. Pop over to the WordPress site for other examples of photography along the subject of “Home”.

This was really a great installation! No birds will like it…but I love the idea and the looks of it!
Yes, a grand idea … would like to imagine the odd feathered creature investigating the ‘show house’…. who knows eh?
how can one not smile at this concept? it’s great and perfect for this challenge!
It’s a bit like venturing down Alice’s rabbit hole, the Secret Garden project 🙂
Love this! I can imagine the chitter of birds as they fly to and from their homes.
Isn’t it great ….
.. including the fanciful naming of it!
🙂 Liz, thanks for sharing. You put a big smile on my face this morning!
What a condo.
Have a great time.
London! It’s full of wonderful, whimsical surprises!
love it…what a great idea but imagine how noisy it will get
That’s the kind of development I want in my neighborhood!
