Urban beehive construction continues

The bees may not be buzzing about, but the folks behind the Urban Beehive Project at the Farm Centre in Charlottetown have been busy. Architects, Silva Stojak and Shallyn Murray of Nine Yards Studio (formerly BGHJ Architects), designed the demonstrative hives and now the second part of the space has been constructed. Brodye Chappell, of Brodye Chappell Builds, continued his work by constructing an amphitheatre stage area in front of the giant beehives, using the same hexagonal shapes that are reminiscent of honeycombs.

In the spring, the stage area will have interpretive panels inserted into some of the hexagonal spaces. Although using the stage for musical events is out (the bees wouldn’t appreciate it), the possibility to use the space for educational workshops and other small scale events is being explored.
