Business Description:

Joyce Hwang is an architect who specializes in animal architecture ‘ also known as ‘habitecture’ ‘ which explores the integration of wildlife habitats into constructed environments.
Hwang’s projects include ‘Life Support,’ a living habitat/art project in the capital of Australia that incorporates a 400-year-old tree and serves as a functional home for bats, birds and reptiles.
‘Bat Cloud’ is a hanging canopy of vessels designed and constructed to support bat habitation in a nature preserve in Buffalo, New York. Comparable to a vertical cave, Hwang’s ‘Bat Tower’ provides a habitat for these often-misunderstood mammals at a sculpture park in Western New York.
