The 8th Birdhouse Exhibition once again selected "space designers". Over the past 10 years construction of the International Space Station has been in progress and even talk of space tourism has appeared in the news. The discussion of space is becoming less NASA orientated. Around the world, there are scientists, technologists, and artists who think about humans living in space. From a diversity of nationality, gender, and cultural background, a wide range of concepts and fresh ideas are emerging. Once more we welcome an international selection of talent from whose wisdom and sensibility we search for clues for what can strengthen connection between humans and nature.
