The University at Buffalo's Joyce Hwang installed this twisted bat house at Griffis Sculpture Park this year. "Bat Tower" stands about 12 feet tall, with walls of finished plywood panels arranged in a ribbed, accordion-like pattern. The conspicuous design, unusual for a bat house, serves a purpose: Hwang, an assistant professor of architecture, says she hopes "Bat Tower" draws attention to bats and white-nose syndrome, a deadly affliction that has reportedly killed more than 1 million bats in recent years, striking the mammals as they hibernate.
