The Hive at Kew Gardens

The Hive at Kew Gardens

The Hive Launch at Kew Gardens – opens 18th June 2016

Designed by artist Wolfgang Buttress, The Hive is a unique, awe-inspiring structure set amongst a wildflower meadow in Kew Gardens. The Hive was originally created as the centrepiece of the UK Pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo.

Inspired by the humble bee’s vital role in the world of pollination in feeding the planet, The structure stands in at 17 metres tall and weighs in at 40 tonnes and tells the story through an immersive multi-sensory experience. The sound and light inside is controlled by the workings of the actual beehive. Constructed from around 170,000 aluminum parts, The Hive comes alive with hundreds of glowing LED lights flashing in response to the buzz of bees with a unique live soundtrack.
