Based on my previous posts about architecture, design and sustainability, I’m certain the casual observer would expect that I’d also appreciate this award-winning design from Peleg/Burshtein Architects.

It’s got solar power, wind power, clean lines..what’s not to like?

Well, the fact that it’s an industrial chicken coop.

Sure, this place generates it’s own power and converts the waste into bio-fuel, but it’s still a coop.  A long hallway that these chickens have to spend their entire life in.

You know what’s an even better, more sustainable way to house them?  Let them be open range.  Earth, already made, naturally ventilated.
