Architecture for the Birds

May 11, 2017 - September 16, 2017 Starion Gallery, General Exhibition


Architecture for the Birds is an annual exhibition in partnership with the North Dakota State University Department of Architecture & Landscape Architecture. The challenge of the participating students is to design and fabricate a birdhouse taking inspiration from the work of a specific architect. In addition, they are asked to design a space suited for the specific needs of a chosen bird. Innovative design and artistry meets environmental understanding and appreciation, resulting in provocative creations for lovers of art, architecture and/or birds. Due to its popularity, this exhibition has been given an extended run over the summer and will now take place in the Starion Gallery of the Museum’s Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity.

Exhibition is sponsored by the Longspur Prairie Fund.
