The Habitat for the Yellow Bird by Takayo Noda

The Habitat for the Yellow Bird by Takayo Noda

Takayo Noda is a collage artist, printmaker, writer, and illustrator, born in Tokyo and now living in NYC. In 2007, she designed this faceted glass installation for the Sutter Ave. MTA station in East New York, Brooklyn.

Beautiful and filled with color, the installation depicts butterflies, bees and birds among flowers including pansies, poppies and sunflowers. It’s all incredibly cheery:
