Urban Cohabitation

Fall. 2022

London. United Kingdom

Facade and Urban Design

This retrofit proposal asks the question of whether it is possible for humans and insects to cohabit space in an urban context. Baynard house, in its current condition, has a harsh materiality, lack of pedestrian access, and remains only within private use, blatantly rejecting its surroundings. So this intervention proposes a new facade system in which natural environments for bees and pollinators are encouraged to nest in, within the proximity of a new proposed program of 65 single-housing apartment units, in order to repurpose heat from the existing data center and promote social engagements among humans and animals by this riverside location.
