Land­ing at Kew Gar­dens, 020 8332 5655,, this sum­mer, artist Wolf­gang But­tress’s Hive in­stal­la­tion is a must-see. Com­mis­sioned by UK Trade & In­vest­ment (UKTI), the Hive, in­spired by the vi­tal role that bees play in the ecosys­tem, daz­zled vis­i­tors to the UK Pav­il­ion at the Milan Expo 2015. A flower meadow sur­rounds the Hive, while in­side LED lights, or­ches­tral mu­sic and rhythmic buzzing cre­ate an im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence. UKTI was recog­nised as the best Backer of Bri­tish De­sign for the in­stal­la­tion at the H&G 2016 De­sign Awards. En­try is in­cluded with day ad­mis­sion to Kew; £15 for adults.
