Hive created by the artist Wolfgang Buttress for the UK pavilion at Millan Expo 2015 and now moved to Kew Gardens. The idea came from bee’s honeycomb structure, which offers the multi-sensory experience. I visited there last year and enjoyed speechless atmosphere especially from the inside.

What’s amazing is that each led in the Hive is tracking a bee in a real bee-hive in the garden next door. So when the bees are active during the day the lights flicker to show movement, and at night the lights are still and quiet.
