With bee populations declining globally and monoculture farming destroying their habitats, the BeeCrib focuses on re-designing a beehive for the urban environment. Using CNC routing, the designers, from the Bachelor of Design Innovation program at Victoria University Wellington in New Zealand, created a flat-pack top bar beehive that can be assembled easily without tools or glue. The goal is to have it available through open source manufactures such as Ponoko to help hobbyist beekeeping become more accessible and affordable and thereby increase the bee population.
