'Bee Stop is a ‘pause button’ acting as a reminder of the value and pleasures of supporting biodiversity in seemingly unpromising spaces. This low maintenance mini-meadow constructed with purpose built growing structures and installed on a small vacant roof surface highlights the potential to co-opt even small areas to mitigate against pollution, urban heat radiation, and rainwater loss.' Margot Bannerman, 2010
Bee Stop was commissioned by London Borough of Islington as part of the Secret Garden Projects and was produced by Up Projects. AIR is working with Margot to develop further grown interventions across Archway. Margot Bannerman is a senior lecturer at Central Saint Martins and is an AIR Research Associate.
