Insect-Accommodating Abodes
The University at Buffalo's Skyscraper for Bees is a Towering Hive

By: Brandon Bastaldo (Prodigy) May 8, 13

For those who think that towers are things strictly for humans, the University at Buffalo’s skyscraper for bees is great proof that even insects need gigantic office space too.

Around the turn of the century when the industrial revolution took off and skyscrapers began to pop up in every major North American city, monstrous towers were a sign of prosperity and opulence.  Fast forward nearly a half century later and skyscrapers became a modern fixture necessary for accommodating large workforces while also looking grand.

This glorious skyscraper for bees is a great example of how humans have actually taken the pragmatics and beauty of these towering city scape designs and adopted their usefulness for another species. Housing a system of pulleys, this skyscraper for bees is wondrous habitat maintained by beekeepers.
