the birdcage in the middle of the city

Whenever I pass by this large birdcage on Xi Dawanglu (西大望路)just outside the Blue Castle complex, I have to wonder who thought of putting a large birdcage in the middle of the Central Business District of Beijing.  Did a developer look around and think, “What this city really needs is a birdcage?”

On a more personal note: because I pass by the birdcage all the time, it inspired me to create quirkyBeijing.

    Maybe something related to the fortune telling.
    Friend told me that the reason why they put a huge birdcage in that location is becoz it will bring good luck to this area.
    Well, if that is true, then I have to say it worked, this area is booming..
