For the birds

In 2019, Hollabrunn has become home to a unique birdhouse colony: Thirty-eight nesting boxes and feeders will now be adorning the park around the town hospital for an indefinite period of time. Loosely based on the Werkbundsiedlung, an experimental housing estate in Vienna, this project assembles innovative prototypes for a future-oriented style of community living for all.

Due to the partly fragile constructions, some birdhouses had to be dismantled. At the same time, other artists and architects were invited to design new birdhouses, which will be on display in the freely accessible garden from September 30, 2022.
