Birds Nest responds to the natural environment with its organic shape and detailing that suggests the idea of a branch supporting a bird's nest. Ibrahim Rashid is an award winning poet and visual artist. For this project Rashid created two designs, Birds Nest and Poetic Moments.
Part of a series of functional public art seating treatments that were installed at 26 crossings within the Centennial and Hydro Corridor Multi-Use Pathways, this project allows for the integration of functional artwork into neighbourhoods citywide, promotes active living and provides amenities to those using the pathways.
