The Hive by Mostapha El Oulhani

The Hive” is inspired at the same moment by the natural shelter built by bees and traditional forms of the Andalusian Arabian architecture and it was designed by Mostapha El Oulhani. The modules of arrangement of hexagonal shape overlap so as to draw a landscape within the space and so become an element structuring all around of whom the user can circulate. The bottom of modules is established by a leaky motive which makes reference to the moucharabieh and the graphics of which evokes the disintegration of alveoli which can be observed on certain hives. – Via
