A honeybee-inspired urban intervention has transformed a Sicilian city block into a thriving green public space. Milia Arredamenti and Farm Cultural Park commissioned OFL Architecture to design Zighizaghi, a multi-sensory urban garden in the town of Favara. Completed last month, the new “living room” to Favara welcomes visitors with plants, music, and art.
Each piece of furniture is a “hybrid,” an unlikely combination of two objects with no obvious relationship. For example, a city block has mated with a desk to create workspaces that look like little gabled houses.
