BEE / HOUSE / LAB is an international design competition hosted by the University of Manitoba and open to students and designers in the field of environmental design, architecture, landscape architecture, industrial design, and other related fields. The competition calls for a design of a bee house prototype that can be fabricated and deployed for field testing. A Design Jury will determine winning designs and a pool of top submissions will be fabricated. More than 100 houses will be field-tested to study their space-form-habitat performance.

The competition is hosted by the University’s Office of Sustainability, and supported by the FABLab at the Faculty of Architecture, the Department of Entomology and Parks Canada Campus Club at the University of Manitoba. STUFF (Studio for Transformative Urban Forms and Fields) is serving as the design competition coordinator.
