Pollinator House Design/Build Competition


For the 25th anniversary of Garden Walk Buffalo, Gardens Buffalo Niagara and the Buffalo Architecture Foundation have joined forces to organize and facilitate a design/build competition of Pollinator Houses. The spirit of the competition brings awareness to the wide array of pollinators in Western New York while challenging the notion of how these Pollinator Houses can or should look. Most importantly, the competition also encourages all participants to become designers and advocates for these critical animal partners. This is an Open, One-stage, Design-Build competition for functional, contemporary pollinator houses to be auctioned off to support Gardens Buffalo Niagara and Buffalo Architecture Foundation programs.

This competition is free to enter. Submissions will be accepted from March 1 through May 15, 2019. Entries will be displayed starting June 15, 2019. Awards will be announced in August 2019.
