Comments Off on Project B connects urban beekeeping with the needs of restaurants

Fundamental to the biodiversity cycle, and essential to our food chain, bee populations in industrial countries are decreasing at an alarming rate due to changes dictated by the industrialization of nature’s environment. As a result of this phenomenon, urban beekeeping has recently gained popularity as the practice becomes more of an interest for citizens of major urban cities. Project B aligns within this global effort of bee preservation by offering a beekeeping service adapted to the needs of restaurants with the objective to develop this millenary art. At the heart of this offer is an innovative beehive optimized to the well-being of the colony that also promotes introductory methods to beekeeping.

Spanish Artist Javier Requejo Fernández Designs 13 Black Houses to Highlight the Crisis in Spain

Comments Off on Spanish Artist Javier Requejo Fernández Designs 13 Black Houses to Highlight the Crisis in Spain

Javier Requejo Fernández from Spain designed Palafitos – a series of 13 small black houses that symbolize an ongoing crisis in his home country. Plagued by economic and political woes, the people consistently worry about their future. And a hard winter of constant rain has exacerbated the situation. Similar to homes in Chile, many of these gloomy models are constructed on stilts to resist floods. A powerful temporary installation with an architectural bent, Palafitos reflects on the turmoil that has permeated not only Spain, but so many countries across the globe. + Javier Requejo Fernández The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
