The importance of green infrastructure
Research suggests that several bee species can thrive in urban environments to the same extent as agricultural landscapes and nature reserves. As urban densification increases and green space decreases, how can you reinforce green links to support ecosystem services?
One answer could come in the form of Pocket Parks. Bee Connected was a pop-up pocket park on Avenyn, comprising of different levels of hexagonal structures that act as planting vessels. They contain plants, water and materials that benefit bees and other insect pollinators. Each hexagonal prism represent city blocks; their green walls, roofs and courtyards illustrate how green infrastructure can be strengthened in the city.
