"ancient relationship between bees and flowers is a classic example of what is known as 'coevolution'. In a coevolutionary bargain like the one struck by the bee and the apple tree, the two parties act on each other to advance their individual interests but wind up trading favors... Matters between me and the spud i was planting, I realized, really aren't much different ;we, too are partners in the coevolutionary relationship, as we have been since the birth of agriculture".

Ameliorate - Park replicator

Looking into the box you can see an infinite park. The exterior has a an artificial cilia. The cilia was to replicate the feeling of entering a flower.

Exacerbate - Human Pollinator

Grafting a synthetic ring at the base of the london planes could provide an alternative method of pollinating trees. Voluntary exposure that would be a form of treatment.

Sick Axo

This was an experimental drawing based on what you would see when you pollinate the device. This was designed to be attractive and phallic. ref. Hiroshi Sugimoto - his eye level photographs inspired the idea of the drawings being blurred close up. The dots represent Pollen.

Urban Proposal

Typologies of London parks are generally block. I wanted the park to be more linear therefore I looked to Pope Sixtus's plan from Rome and Hausmann's Paris for a hybrid radial approach. This would link Beehives to the closest foraging area. Foraging areas would overlap between beehives and form a link between them.

Long City Section

This is a part of the a long section spanning from Hyde Park, through the site/tower (1 Curzon Street) to the Royal Academy of Art. The Roof of the royal academy was one of the foraging areas put in place to reconstitute unused rooftops.

As the strips cross the city, They interact with city. The Strip would be color coded, acting as a visual marker to bees and humans, guiding them to the closest foraging area.

Tower Over Time

The Tower would evolve as nature takes over the project. The Tower is a simple structure purely to support the hive.

Section Hive

The human interaction is from inside the structure. A double helix staircase provides access and represents the duality of access generally found in hospitals.


The treatment process takes place in the form of different levels of exposure. These pods branch of the main structure. The claustrophobic experience is designed to make the human experience comparable to the experience of the bee.


These plans are supposed to bring the project closer to the initial sick axos. The top of the tower is used as a helicopter pad. This would provide medical assistance through the city , as part of the London Air ambulance service.

Also this adds to aesthetic of the building behaving like a flower.


The city would slowly transform into the giant garden. This would shift the relationship, that we have with bees and plants. The root of solving the problem is human behavior. Gardening thought of as our dominance over nature. We need be humbled in the relationship in order to understand.
