The works of the selected authors listed below have been chosen for print in ARCHHIVE BOOKS’ upcoming publication, alongside award-winning Bee Breeders competition entries, and featured design and product companies such as Bureau SLA, Heatherwick Studio, BIG, Enerbrain, Solidia Technologies, Biotecture, and many others.
