How might we design facilities to facilitate the quantities and variety of plants in the urban environment?

Muu is a solitary bee hive system designed for urban environments that consists of a stackable module and a stand shelter. Modules can be used on private balconies and courtyards or combined with stand shelter to be settled in public spaces such as parks and community gardens.

modular

Two modules can be assembled into a complete hive that can hold up to 40 bee eggs (enough to pollinate 2 fruit trees or 100 square meters of the garden). It can be placed directly on the grass or the steps of the yard. Users can stack modular in their way to decorate the garden with different structures. Models are also freely shared on the web, and you can download models to make your hives

Stands shelter

Stands shelter is specially designed for public Settings to provide a safe and comfortable room for solitary bees even in the absence of care. The design details take into account visual factors, climate, environmental protection, public management, and the significance of public education.
