The Urban Habitat Project (UHP) is focused on creating dwellings for the aviary community and has successfully installed units in major metropolises from New York to Mexico City.

XAM comes to New York via Chicago and Los Angeles and has been part of the active street-art scene for many years. Drawing on his architectural training, XAM has created by far one of the most unique types of street art to truly integrate form and function. These structures are no ordinary “bird houses;” many of them are site-specific constructions that include solar panels for night lights and roof-top gardens to actively support plant life and encourage insect nesting. At times there are elements of humor in the designs, such as mock satellite dishes and camouflage paint jobs.
