Design a House, Build a Community! This was an open, one-stage, design-build competition in which entrants were asked to deliver a functional, contemporary pollinator house to be auctioned off to support both Garden Walk Buffalo and Buffalo Architecture Foundation’s programs.
For the 25th anniversary of Garden Walk Buffalo, Gardens Buffalo Niagara and the Buffalo Architecture Foundation are coming together to organize and facilitate a design/build competition of Pollinator Houses. The spirit of the competition seeks to bring awareness to the wide array of pollinators in Western New York. This competition aspires to generate awareness of pollinators of all types and challenge the notion of how these Pollinator Houses can or should look. The competition also encourages all to participate by becoming designers and advocates for these critical animal partners.
