Animalesque is a design-led architectural research and education laboratory committed to using innovative technology to study the way animals and humans interact in urban environments. Its goal is to create new forms of urban living that enable all forms of life to co-inhabit cities in a mutually beneficial way. The laboratory is set up by the Architectural Association in collaboration with ANCB.
Berlin is an ideal location for exploring new ways humans and wildlife can co-inhabit urban spaces. Initially, Animalesque will develop architectural models that integrate bee nesting spaces into their structures. Through its educational programmes and outreach work, the AA Visiting School aims to inspire a discussion and debate on the practical ways innovative combinations of zoology, life sciences, digital technology, architecture and cybernetics can make cities better places for all forms of life to prosper.
