architecture publications

ARCHHIVE is a print publication expanding on the ideas presented in Bee Breeders’ online architectura, design competitions. Bee Breeders is a generator of new ideas, conceived by a worldwide think tank, for tackling challenging design issues. It often works with civic, industry, or government partners to initiate its competitions, some of which are conceptual while others are intended to be built.

Each issue of ARCHHIVE will bring together architects with startups, entrepreneurs, developers, and problem-solving organizations which tackle these same global issues, often in ways other than building. ARCHHIVE merges the wealth of Bee Breeders’ novel architectural design proposals, with complementary ideas in entrepreneurship, policy, and technology.
