based Eriksen Skajaa Architects’ proposal about Urban Beehives was recently acknolwegded in the  Triennale. The project explores how biodiversity can act as a catalyst for urban development and generate ideas to respond to social diversity. The study examines the environment of the Aker River as an infrastructure for urban food production as well as an apiary at the Vaterland Park.   The proposal intends to illustrates how biodiversity, small-scale urban gardening and food production can contribute to a new layer of urban development centered on the riverbanks.

Interesting infrastructure narrative and it’s character creatures.

Nice idea… remember reading something about this last summer actually:

“We want urban people to engage with wildlife and get joy and pleasure from it… the more hives you have the more resilient the whole population is to the outbreak of disease.”

Interestingly, Scarlett Johansson is an urban beekeeper, apparently…
