Centre of The Hive

By Drighlynne
The Hive is a unique, multi-sensory experience designed to highlight the extraordinary life of bees. A feat of British engineering, it stands 17 metres tall, set in a wildflower meadow. The Hive is an immersive sound and visual experience. The lights you see and the sounds you hear inside The Hive are triggered by bee activity in a real beehive at Kew.
The intensity of the sounds and light change constantly, echoing that of the real beehive. The multi award-winning Hive was inspired by scientific research into the health of honeybees. It is a visual symbol of the pollinatorsí role in feeding the planet and the challenges facing bees today.
It is the design of UK based artist Wolfgang Buttress. Originally created for the UK Pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo. Itís 17 metres tall, constructed from 170,000 aluminium parts, 1,000 LED lights and took four months to reconstruct at Kew.
This little boy wanted to be the only one standing in the middle of the glass upper floor, he kept trying and finally succeeded.
