Bird Brick: a project by Kingston graduate Aaron Dunkerton

Posted Monday 29 July 2013

With evermore urbanisation and building across the British landscape, wildlife often suffers. The population of sparrows for example have dropped by 70 per cent in the past 30 years.

Recent Kingston University graduate Aaron Dunkerton may very well have come up with a solution to this problem. His most recent project, the Bird Brick, allows sparrows to nest in the bricks of buildings or walls without causing any disruption or damage to the buildings that they inhabit.

His eco-friendly work is getting a great deal of press coverage and we hope to see more of his work in the future. "I really enjoyed my time at Kingston, and would not have gone anywhere else. The workshop is amazing!  I now plan to go on to do an internship before getting a job within the product and furniture design industry."
