UK Pavilion Presents a Giant Aluminum Beehive

The United Kingdom presents a giant aluminum beehive as part of its contribution to the universal exposition in Milan, Italy. Designed by Nottingham-based artist Wolfgang Buttress and constructed by Stage One, the massive, eye-catching aluminum beehive features a cuboid lattice layout as audio-visual devices embedded within the hive allow it to pulse, glow and buzz similar to a real beehive. LED lights affixed onto the metal coils allow it to illuminate at night as the hypnotizing columns produce an abstract, yet distinct aesthetic.
