"THE BIRDS AND THE BEES" BUILT FOR THE ANTHROPOCENE BY HARRISON ATELIER
opening july 16, 2016
Francine Hunter McGivern and The Frank Institute @ CR-10 present an installation by Harrison Atelier, The Birds and the Bees.
The Birds and the Bees proposes a locus of cohabitation for pollinators and humans. A suite of drawings, molds, and prototypes traces the development of panels for a multi-species façade system. Panels test out varied materials and aperture size in an ongoing exploration of new dwelling typologies for local cavity-nesting birds and solitary bees. The Birds and the Bees is part of a series of Harrison Atelier speculative building projects that explore human/non-human species cohabitation in the Anthropocene period.
