The Hive is an expansion to a community garden that includes an outdoor classroom, cafe stand, storage shed, benches, tables, cubbies, and chalkboard. It was designed for children in the Pilsen community.
The Hive resembles a scaled-up version of a langstroth hive. The outdoor classroom reveals the typical frame that is found inside langstroth hives, and the hexagonal pattern shows us the honeycomb structure created by bees.
