Wildlife could "takeback" the Holbeck Urban Village in Leeds

From the Garnett Netherwood website

Spotted in the October 2009 issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine, the proposed Urban Takeback project by architects at Garnett Netherwood consists of Green Tower Structures designed "to cater for the wildlife of Holbeck Urban Village" in Leeds, England.

  1. Cool idea, but it makes me wonder how much those architects know about actual wildlife... don't most birds prefer to nest where there is more cover from raptors? And the rendering of the fox is cute, but aren't they mostly nocturnal? I think they're just going to have to break down and plant some actual TREES! :)

  2. Seems like the towers would appeal to edge-tolerant avian species only.
