Norway based Eriksen Skajaa Architects’ proposal about Urban Beehives was recently acknolwegded in the Oslo 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.
