Invasive Architecture

Mallory Lane

ARCH 511 / Spring 2018

This bee research facility is meant to start a conversation about how we expand cities, invade territories and how people's invasion of space can be just as consequential as an invasive species. This project is meant to set the visitor in the territory of the bees, experiencing a bee's world territory as a bee would at a smaller scale.

There are four stages of invasion which are transport, establishment, spread and impact. These four stages are used within the experience of the architecture to create a dynamic landscape that spreads into new territories and creates experiences for visitors to experience the feeling of having their space invaded through the senses.
