I recently went to the National Building Museum to experience an unusual and creative exhibit known as the Hive.
The Hive is built entirely of wound paper tubes (over 2700 of them) that are recyclable, lightweight, and renewable. The tubes vary in sizes and reaches a height of 10 feet. The paper tubes interlock to create domed chambers and a stunning visual effect.
The coolest aspect of the “Hive” is that in its’ smaller chambers, there are tubular instruments ranging from simple drum-like tubes to chimes suspended within the space demonstrating its’ unique acoustic properties. Here are just a few of the fun pictures I captured!
