Bee Breeders, in partnership with ARCHHIVE BOOKS, is calling for essay submissions for their second print publication “What is Small-Scale Architecture?” which is planned for release in Spring 2020.
Pavilions. Shelters. Backyard studios. Outdoor toilets. Playgrounds and play structures. Treehouses. Phone booths. Chapels. Meditation spaces...Even the smallest projects can contain big ideas. Sometimes these ideas, such as new explorations in materials and form, can have significant influences on the practice of architecture. Architects, startups, investors, entrepreneurs, and companies are inventing new means for designing small spaces that enrich lives. All of these ideas fall within the wide-ranging topic of small-scale architecture. Do you have an idea or something to say about small-scale architecture? Guidelines:
