The LEGENDARY BIRD HOME 2020 competition is the first in a planned series of competitions looking to raise awareness for the global environmental crisis. This competition will be a collaboration with Birdly – a socially-responsible startup that aims to support environmental activism worldwide through funds raised by selling bird homes.
Participants are tasked with presenting innovative and attention-grabbing designs for a legendary birdhouse that can be built at home, using materials and building methods that are both environmentally sustainable and easily available.
Each project will need to include details of the building method and the materials to be used, ensuring that the structure could be built by a single person with tools that are widely available. In order to make the project more accessible, simple tools that are available at home are recommended, however more sophisticated techniques – like the use of a laser cutter – can be proposed.
The winning designs will receive a share of the prize fund as well as media coverage, and their designs will be put forward for production and sale on birdly.org, with half of the profit donated to selected charities.
