In 2010, the artist collective London Fieldworks, founded by Bruce Gilchrist and Jo Joelson, created a fantastic series of bird houses. The work of art, called "Spontaneous City in the Tree of Heaven," consisted of several hundred custom bird houses mounted in two trees of heaven (Ailanthus altissima) and were a reflection of the housing stock around the trees—a mix of public housing from the 1960s and Georgian town houses.
