Creative, useful and environmentally friendly setting in the big city

In an effort to support the beekeeping in Oslo (Norway), has the architecture Studio of snøhetta Beehive designed the so-called volcano and created and above installed on the food Department mathallen . This project links both – the Centre and various green spaces in the city environment. The tree shape and pattern are strongly influenced by the naturally occurring Combs, resulting square panels with hexagonal shapes. The volume of wood sticking out over the parapet height and the passers-by on the street can easily identify them.
