Project Description

As visitors make their way though the meadow they will gaze upon the hive in the distance. It glistens like a beacon on the horizon, much like the sun enabling life on earth. The structure is inspired by and stands as an abstract reinterpretation of the architecture of bees. Key attributes of the honeycomb have been expressed: translucency, topology, geometric variation, and distribution of multiple functions, layers. These have been re-composed in a new way, using artifice to draw out these intrinsic qualities. Throughout the creative process it has been important to create something that suggestions traces of the key ideas and content; yet open to interpretation, leaving ample room for personal subjectivity to engage in the experience.
