Jurats Square (lookout point), Girona (Gironès)

Spatial intervention that recovers the old bird cage that had been at the first lookout point at the Jurats Square of Girona. The cage is understood as a construction with little structural body with the capacity to contain anything inside. In this case the conventional henhouse mesh is replaced by a stronger and enigmatic limitation which, like a decorative lattice, allows to hide and insinuate a garden of fragile flowers revolting like birds.
