Opening Sunday, November 3rd, from 1PM - 3PM
Led by Bird-Friendly Chicago, Chicago Ornithological Society, Audubon Great Lakes, Chicago Audubon Society, Chicago Bird Collision Monitors with the architects of Perkins & Will and Studio Gang.
Since humans designed and built the structures and windows that injure and kill many migratory birds, that means it also falls in our hands to change and innovate ways to make our buildings more bird-friendly.
We invite you to discover why birds congregate in Chicago, how adopting bird-friendly building policies can help save birds, and how we are building better, safer buildings for birds, using design elements that deter birds without forfeiting aesthetics.
Join Chicago-based bird conservation and advocacy organizations (Bird-Friendly Chicago, Chicago Ornithological Society, Audubon Great Lakes, Chicago Audubon Society, Chicago Bird Collision Monitors) and architects (Perkins & Will and Studio Gang) for a series of presentations that will explore Chicago from both a bird’s and an architect’s unique point of view. Birds that are most affected by collisions will be highlighted, as well as best practices for construction, focusing on some of Chicago’s most bird-friendly buildings.
This event will conclude the 2019 Tender House Project Togetherism programming series at the Bridgehouse Museum, and the last day the bridgehouse will be open before winter.
