The Hive was designed by Wolfgang Buttress and was inspired by scientific research into the health of bees.
The installation is made from thousands of pieces of aluminium and provides a unique experience which changes constantly as orchestral sounds and LED lights respond to activity within a real beehive.
With a wildflower meadow leading the way to The Hive, it will be a truly immersive, multi-sensory experience and will take visitors on a journey, exploring the vital role of bees and other pollinators in feeding the planet.
