Beehive Architecture proposes that honeybees might also be of help in designing particular architectural structures for large-scale applications. Bees are cloud engineers: they can analyze and design lightweight, architectural skins. They marry the accuracy of technology with the organic characteristics of nature to create an architectural experience that is both aesthetic and functional. The final objects/pavilions from the beehives would be scanned using Computer Tomography and fabricated and assembled in segments at a different scale and with different material. The beeswax pavilions are as much a beautiful testimony to the power of nature as they are a poetic translation of what the future of architecture could be. Only in using this back-and-forth process between nature and technology informing each other can humans remain in balance with their surrounding environment. In this perhaps lies an answer to how we might live together.
