Description

While large green areas in Beirut have become rare, small gardens are also disappearing due to the rampant construction of large real estate projects replacing an older urban heritage fabric that was often characterized by the garden house “Urban hives” proposes to reintroduce the garden in parking lots. The proposed car-sized lightweight structure, raised above the car, is a lifted garden characterized by urban farming and beehives. Installed in two parkings in Beirut in the frame of Beirut Design Week 2018
