110 Birdhouses

| May 31 | 110 bird houses beirut

A few months ago I started noticing these colorful little birdhouses popping up all over Hamra. I particularly liked this large cluster against the side of an apartment building bordering a makeshift parking lot on Hamra Street. I finally got around to taking a photo and decided to actually look up some info on the project. I found this crazy little YouTube video (in, I guess, Danish) and that seems to be all of the information about the street art. The project is by a guy named Thomas Dambo who appears to have come to Beirut just to create and install the project.

I personally love the little bird homes and think they add color and character to the neighborhood.
