ARCHHIVE is a print publication expanding on the ideas presented by
Bee Breeders Architecture Competition Organisers.
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.
ARCHHIVE aims to 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.
