Depuis la naissance de la ruche moderne en 1852, la construction des ruches ne fait plus preuve d’innovation structurelle. En privilégiant la ruche cubique standardisée, l’apiculture tourne le dos à 4 400 ans de diversité architecturale. Ce bref ouvrage s’intéresse à la période qui précède l’homogénéisation, en remontant jusqu’à – 2 400. Le rejet d’un récit figé permet au polymorphisme de prendre le pas sur la linéarité. L’histoire des ruches est racontée d’un nouveau point de vue, à travers le graphisme, la photographie et le texte. 375 illustrations donnent un aperçu de l’histoire prolifique de l’architecture destinée aux non-humains. 

Cet ouvrage constitue le fragment d’un projet de recherche permanent et ouvert, intitulé « Apian » qui fait appel à des méthodes théoriques, iconographiques et ethnographiques pour étudier la relation entre abeilles et humains.

HIVES, 2400 B.C.E. – 1852 C.E.
(A Visual history of the beehive)

Since the birth of the modern beehive in 1852, structural innovation in hive construction has entered a dormant period. By favouring the standardised box hive, beekeeping turns its back on 4,400 years of architectural diversity. This little book focuses on that period of history prior to homogenisation, drawing from as far back as 2400 BCE. By rejecting a fixed narrative, linearity makes way for polymorphism, introducing graphic design, photography and writing to retell the story of beehives. The 375 images offer a glimpse into this proliferous history of architecture for non-humans.

This book is a fragment of an ongoing and open-ended research project titled “Apian” which uses theoretical, iconographic and ethnographic methods to research on the relationship between bees and humans.
