Buzzbench in publication Making Urban Nature

The Buzzbench is one of the nature art projects in the publication Stadsnatuur maken / Making Urban Nature, an inspirational book about nature-inclusive designing in European cities.

The book calls for the integration of the nature in the designs of buildings and urban outdoor spaces and includes practical examples and design suggestions.

The authors are members of De Natuurlijke Stad, a collaboration of architects, biologists and urban ecologists. The authors see nature as an integral part of the urban organism and as such as important to the quality of life in the city.

The Buzzbench is a monumental bench in a citypark where visitors find a quiet retreat and at the same time a biotope for wild bees. With the Buzzbench I’d like to create a new public space that will bring our sensory perception to a higher level.
