The project created by SHU-CHUN HSIAO tries to view the world from different perspectives and scales. We shall change our characters to be surprised by the macro and micron landscapes.

Google Map had created a remarkable landmark icon, showing the sites on its street views. To search for a landmark with online google map, we can scroll to zoom from the satellite, soon we'll be able to wander on streets, virtually.

Birds, have the most real experience of google map.

Birds can fly through the city, through streets. A birdhouse becomes their destination as google map does.

The project is aiming to put numbers of birdhouses all over the city for bird to accommodate. The iconic symbol will become a navigating landmark for the flying birds.
