COOKFOX and Buro Happold design living facade for birds and bees

Although his title may be traditional, COOKFOX Senior Associate Spencer Lapp has another role not found at most firms: He is COOKFOX’s resident beekeeper. Lapp’s enthusiasm for the little insects that power our ecosystem corresponds with an interest in designs that harmonize with nature. That interest was evident in a recent collaboration between COOKFOX, Buro Happold, and terra-cotta manufacturer Boston Valley Terra Cotta that explored how architects can design facades as ecosystems.
