Cohabitable Architecture is a workshop run under an artist initiative called Animal Estates.  We are interested in designing structures where bats and humans have to share space.

It takes the form of a 4 day workshop where participants will explore the following questions:

* How can we design structures that support the bat population while maintaining human occupation?

*How can we learn from the properties and behaviours of bats to design structures for humans?

*What happens when the proportion of dedicated space for humans is inverted with the proportion for bats? Will different structures and spaces be formed?

*How can we share space with animal species?

*What playful and fun spaces and structures can arise from designing cohabitable architecture?

These questions help to shape our explorations into cohabitable architecture.
