The BuzzBuilding

BuzzBuilding is part of the Belathew Labs project InsectCity, with the aim of making Stockholm self-sufficient in protein through urban insect production.

In order to visualize what an urban insect production might look like, Belatchew Labs has developed the insect farm BuzzBuilding situated at Vanadisplan, Stockholm, offering 10 350 m² farmable surface for the breeding of crickets.

BuzzBuilding consists of a building which integrates the whole production flow of insects, from egg to ready-to-eat insect.
