Inside The Hive.

One of the thing I like about Singapore is that you are always welcome to venture inside buildings and this was no exception, the only requirement was like in any other buildings, to check-in and have our temperature check, then we were welcome to explore the different floors.

Designed by British designer Thomas Heatherwick, The Hive is Heatherwick Studio’s first major building in Asia. The building consists of 12 eight-storey towers arranged around a public atrium. The towers taper towards the base and house 56 corner-less classrooms. The concrete stair and lift cores between the towers are embedded with 700 drawings from British artist Sara Fanelli that depict images from science, art and literature.

The building has received mixed reviews, with the Architectural Review saying that while “there is much to admire” about the building, “it gave off something of a forlorn car-park aesthetic”.
