Plan Bee

Plan Bee is a city branding proposal aiming to advocate biodiversity in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This area used to fill with flora and fauna. As time goes by, only the sorrow of its history remains. To patch up the wounds with greenery and colour the faded garden city, we reintroduce traditional Bosnian industry, beekeeping, back to the metropolitan. The easy assembly modular design not only creates additional space for city gardening but also provides pollinators with shelter and haven. Bees play a fundamental role in the ecological system. Cultivating beehives in an urban context will help cities develop economically and have a positive impact on engaging the local community.
