Condo Roost (2014)

Horne + Haywood
Concrete, steel mesh, solar panels, water
2m x 1.2m x 0.4m

The Condo Roost envisages an "alternate" lifestyle for the migratory birds that inhabit Long Reef. 

Amenities will include a clubhouse lounge, 24-hour security, an 18,000-square-foot outdoor pavilion complete with a putting green, bocce ball court, walking trail, private half-acre park, private picnic area, a dramatic two-story lobby with atrium, glass-walled fitness center overlooking the pool with a separate yoga studio, and eco-friendly electrical services using solar powered energy.

An avian-scale sculptural parody imposing human size cultural values upon the landscape of the shorebird. Highlighting the increasing loss of their habitat.  

The Corbusier inspired sculpture is a single poured concrete form.
