concrete birdhouse/betonilinnunpönttö

Not sure who created this great little piece, but I like it. Part of the concrete approach to our new concrete harbor and concrete beach, this not-so-random object makes a statement that is open for interpretation.

Jyväskylä, a city that at times seems to have (almost) no vision. Green and leafy parks with perfectly functional bandshells are closed during neighborhood festivals, but lets build a concrete field in the the middle of a concrete world so we can host the occasional megafest. Trust me, I'll be writing more about this topic later.

  1. I'm afraid I don't understand. Could you put that in more concrete terms?
