Treehive is a monument depicting the interplay of human ingenuity and collective consciousness with technology and material science. It takes the form of a giant tree-like structure with a honeycomb-domed canopy. Visitors are invited to explore the structure via a double helical staircase representing mankind’s ever-changing influence on the natural world. The staircase spirals through the sculpture as it transitions from stone, to copper and bronze, to steel, iron, concrete and aluminum, and finally to fiber-reinforced composite materials and architectural fabrics. This progression of materials signifies mankind’s transition from the Stone Age, to the Bronze Age, through the Industrial Revolution, and into the digital age. The journey through changing materials facilitates exploration of the dynamic history of fabrication technology.
