Here we go again

Criterias of a suitable place for the hive are an up structure to hang and the proximity of resources.

Bees construct the hive shape by shape with their wax, and begin to hold resources (pollens, nectar)

If the hive is whealthy enough, the bees will extend it creating new shape or enlarging existing ones.

The hive is too prosperous one queen will fly away with the half of bees to establish a new hive.

The hives share the territory and the cycle begins again, development is now faster.

bee’s development behaviour explorations


By sharing common place (security through proximity) Complex and strong way to communicate (Waggle dance) (focused on resources)

Each individual has its place and is a part of the community Social mechanism for the bee’s survival - COMMON GOAL

What is the recieve of bee community?

Compromise between individual work (self contribution - search for food) and social time (sharing honey)

Very strong organization with differnents roles (queen, nurse, work, guardian)

bee’s social behaviour explorations


Hive’s geometric form - short scale

Hive’s organic form - large scale

Hexagon as optimization of resources and space Individual modules making the all. Housing modules are the pieces of structure of the hive (volume + structural features)

Despite a geometric short scale arrangement large scale is fluent and more organic Hive is organized in parallel honeycombs. Between them an empty space (access to the cells, air flows)

Honeycombs Sandwiches

Shape organization

Structural rigidity

Variations of intensity of the constructed system permit lot of permeability

Used against swinging Support well compression

hive organization explorations


The hive’s territorial ressources - identities as project materials Historic roads Two roads, two architectural influences

Morphology

Transversal dominance (creek) Rainwater management fails sometimes (floods)

The Caltrain corridor represents the most significant barrier to east-west connectivity in central Palo Alto. ... It is a difficult barrier that divides the city in half,

I am not sure how it could be done without interrupting Caltrain service. I like the idea of having the space above the tracks used. We could have a proper bike path, separated from an extension of Central Expressway running all the way to Page Mill Road.We could also have some green space too. It would be a horrendous process but well worth the effort when it was finished. But Palo Alto is not famous for getting stuff done so I am looking on it as pipe dream. That and the cost. It probably won't happen, sadly.

Our streets are unable to support current volumes of traffic and parking. Future growth will make the situation untenable. Transportation infrastructure is among the top responsibilities of government. Vision and investment are needed to keep Palo Alto moving.

The City's infrastructure backlog is at least $550M, which does not include anything involving Caltrain problem mitigations. It's possible that the City will suggest that if Palo Alto wants to authroize the taxing of property owners to fund this trenching, and possibly underpasses, then they can push for ever larger bonding authority than they have so far.
