PECK: Interactive Birdhouse



PECK was a group project developed with the children of Emily Carr Elementary through a series of workshops and codesign sessions. Through these sessions, we learned that the kids’ favourite creative activities almost always involved building things and animals. We also wanted our object to let them interact with nature and be outdoors.

The project parameters called for us making an interactive object using primarily plywood and repeating shapes.

 Our final product is a build-it-yourself bird feeded that could be taken apart and restructured in a number of ways. Dowels and holes allowed movement of the “peck” trays and the “feet” that formed the bird perches. Magnetic “seeds” that can attach to the trays or the metal shelters add an extra layer of interactivity.
