​A pavilion/bird-feeding station designed according to a number of the site conditions of Corbin, East Kootenays, BC—a location with a history that includes quarrying, hunting & trading by the Ktunaxa Nation and Blackfoot Confederacy and more recently coal mining, natural disaster, labour struggle, rum running and ruin. Today this ghost town, isolated in a remote mountain pass, is only seasonally inhabited by a small population of humans that share the space with a variety of wildlife.

Of particular note are the Black-chinned, Anna’s, Calliope, and Rufous Hummingbirds that pass through each summer. These four species visit South-Eastern British Columbia as part of incredible annual migrations; some birds come all the way from Southern Mexico, through the Crowsnest Pass and onward, as far north as the Yukon Territory. During this time their populations are remarkably dense, they can often be observed swarming in the dozens. The form of this structure is derived from a nearby pit mine; an inverse ziggurat resulting from a century of coal extraction. The bottles-turned-feeders were salvaged from one of the town’s former dumpsites—a steep ravine containing many decades worth of waste and debris.
