“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill


Rowan Dunford’s Urban Beehive won a silver at last years Best Design Awards  – it uses plastic and the top bar method (both very controversial if you read the comments in Idealog).  I’m allergic to bee stings and we don’t have room for one of these (not that they are being commercially manufactured yet), but I’m sure our neighbours have room.

Serendipitously this week I read about French architecture studio AtelierD’s pavilion for both bees and humans (warning – site require flash – sorry ipad lovers)
