Structured Approaches

I love items I come across which have to do with modern architecture and its relationship to nature, and these two structures seem to have style and conservation in mind!

Chicago-based Studio Gang have some of the coolest architecture coming out of here and their projects seem to take the next step in becoming welcome, not imposing, in their surroundings. An upcoming environmental center has been built with bird safety in mind by having a light mesh surround the porches & windows, and their residential building plans have included tilted windows.

I was also glad to come across these amazing modern birdhouses by firm Raumhochrosen. If only I were tiny enough to live in them! (via anything goes)
