Turkish architects to design bird-nest-shaped house in memory of David Bowie
Burak Akşitli/ Istanbul, Jan 18 (DHA) - Turkish architects Erdem brothers have designed an extraordinary house in memory of veteran British rock star David Bowie who has recently died of cancer at 69.
Sunay and Günay Erdem's project was a response to an international architect platform's call for projects to special architects across the globe.
Erdem brothers designed a house, inspired by the unforgettable song of Bowie 'Thru these architect's eyes' in the form of a bird nest in a forest, the architects told Dogan News Agency.
The project regarded the musician's stance critic of metropole buildings, said Erdem brothers.
'In the music video, a look into the sky, as well as a dream of fleeing to the nature and the green by getting free of buildings leap out. These things inspired us. Thus, we thought if a house will be designed for Bowie, it should be constructed far from the city and buildings, and somewhere high above the earth. This could only be a house in the shape of a bird nest' they stressed.
Only nature to supply needs
The house that was designed in memory of Bowie leans against old and tall trees surrounding London, where the rock star had been born, and the house can be reached by a rope.
Designed as a museum, the house will include a library where documents and archives will tell the story of the legendary musician.
While a double room with one bed will be offered in the 7-m2-large house, all needs will be supplied in the nature as the house does not include any bathrooms or kitchen.
Some of the designs of Erdem brothers are La Spezia Port urban transformation project and tree house projects for homeless people in San Francisco. The designers have more than 40 projects across the world, as well as more than 50 international awards.
