Art Imitating Life
Pigeon houses at Mit Gahmr, Egypt
Earth Architecture has a picture of pigeon houses in Egypt that are constructed as a home for the bird for food and a place to collect the droppings for fertilizer.
"Interestingly, the Egyptian pigeon houses remind one of the recent work of architect Vicente Guallart, who in his project The Re-Naturalization of Territory, attempts to create what could be considered as dovecotes for biotechnology and cinema in Tarragona, Spain."
