Intricate drawings of a chapel that also serves as a bird-watching venue are on display at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology this spring. The exhibition, titled Birds of a Feather, will feature work from Spiritform Revival studio, taught by George Hascup, professor of architecture, and Marlon Blackwell, Baird Visiting Professor in architecture. The exhibition is cocurated by Mark Morris, visiting associate professor of architecture.

"The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is a center for interdisciplinary science and training, but also emphasizes communicating about nature to the world at large. For centuries the natural associations between art and ornithology have fertilized creativity in both arenas. The Cornell Lab is proud to host this exhibit as an exceptional example of creative interplay between aesthetics and science," says Lab Director John Fitzpatrick.
