# SWARM /// The Brooklyn Pigeon Project

In 2004, the young architects Ben Aranda and Chris Lasch have realized a research on the swarm phenomenon of homing pigeon flight the " brooklyn pigeon project, a terraswarm project".
They used small localization devices that were carried individually by each Pigeon.
They measure and observed the flight of each pigeon and then they have done a modelisation/visualization like maps and diagrams of the itinerary of the birds that is linked to the atmosphere of the neighborhood.
