Ensuring a thriving community of bees and ladybirds
Bees need homes and bees pollinate flora and fauna. These new houses, constructed by the general public, add interest to any streetscape while ensuring a thriving community of bees and ladybirds across the boroughs of London.
Known simply as ‘Social Behaviour’, the project occupies the space somewhere between street art and community service, providing participants the freedom of architectural expression.
