ENCORE DAY TRIP-THE ARCHITECTURE OF BEES
Wednesday, June 29, 2022,
The Architecture of Bees is an immersive educational visual arts exhibition that brings together designers, architects, naturalists, and beekeepers to illustrate the importance and influence of bees on human design and construction.
A human-scale demonstration of “bee space”, enabling visitors to walk into and experience the spatial dimensions of a beehive.
A celebration of the hexagon – the fundamental shape which makes up honeycomb.
Methods of cooling and heating human homes and office buildings that find similarities within bee colonies.
Wendy Hegar, beekeeper and architect, will speak to us about bees.
We will eat a dutch-treat lunch at Treebeards at 11:00 a.m. where they serve some terrific southern and cajun food.
Following lunch, we will tour the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. Due to the tremendous growth in the city of Houston, in 1959, the Holy See permitted the Most Reverend Wendelin J. Nold, fifth bishop of the Galveston Diocese, to erect a cathedral of convenience in the city. Because of its central location, he chose Sacred Heart Church, built in 1911, to serve as co-cathedral and installed an episcopal chair.
Daytrip details: cost-$10.00
