Air, Handmade : An Art Installation that Cools

learn to make it yourself

Art installations that can cool. Customised art installation for public spaces. (not for windows)
Inspired by the geometry of a beehive, a natural artistic air cooling and purifying solution that does not warm the planet.

What is the Beehive?

The Beehive is a modular facade unit that cools your space through a combination of evaporative cooling and natural ventilation. Envelope cooling is the practice of using various passive/ active cooling techniques to reduce the heat gain through the building envelope. This in turn reduces the cooling load of the spaces inside and results in energy savings. Using the Beehive as a second skin for your facade, which is thoughtfully designed to reduce the cooling demand of your spaces drastically, you can save energy & electricity bills.

Where can I use it?

Outdoor cooling, public spaces, atriums, for cooling low rise buildings and art installations

How it Works

The Beehive enhances natural ventilation through the fluid dynamic shape of terracotta pots and sucks in the warm, outside air through each pot. The smart sensor based water distribution system intelligently drips water onto the pots by sensing the micro climate.

This water gets cooled through the action of evaporative cooling by the pots. When the outside air comes in contact with the chilled water, it gets cooled and the system releases hot air inside the space.

Water used by the system is sensitively conserved by using a recycling system built into the Beehive.

The process of installation is fairly straightforward for installations and can be installed on most of the structures. 

The basic requirements are essentially case by case basis. There is no restriction on minimum area. Directional issues can be handled using mechanical ventilation and retrofitting requirements depending on the project and area considered.

Its always good to have natural ventilation. It brings in the fresh air keeping spaces healthy and pure. Beehive is easy to replicate and you can avoid a frame to cut the cost by constructing the system like a wall. It can be easily built with local fabricators or mason. All you need is a basic plumbing system and terracotta pots.
