Project: BIRD-SAFE BUILDING GUIDELINES
Client: New York City Audubon
"The health and well-being of wildlife is an important and often overlooked topic. This piece pulls at the heartstrings and has broad implications for landscape architects and architects alike."
— 2008 Professional Awards Jury Comments
PROJECT STATEMENT: The Bird-Safe Building Guidelines publication is a 55-page manual that was created to reach a wide audience of all those concerned with the design and management of the built environment. It reveals the magnitude of bird-collisions with glass, describes the conditions that cause these deadly collisions, and presents clear strategies to mitigate this problem through design – both design of new sites & structures and retrofit of existing conditions.
PROJECT NARRATIVE: The Guidelines examine the causes of bird mortality in the built environment; convey the ecological, economic, ethical and legal justifications for bird conservation; advocate a series of preventative and rehabilitative strategies, and describe precedents for regulatory initiatives. They strive to stimulate the development of new glazing technologies while creating a market for all bird-safe building sites and systems.
