Over the last 7 years Thomas Dambo made more than 3500 birdhouses in various projects all over the world. Birds are some of the few animals still living in the cities, and he initiated this project because he thought that it is important to make sure that they can continue living here.
People always ask him if birds use the houses or not. his answer is that birds move into the houses if there are birds in that area, birds will not move into the houses if they are hung on a light pole next to a noisy road. But they will do it in a tree or in a park. The project is both about creating a shelter for birds, and also about reminding us that it’s important to have room for birds in the urban cities.
