The UK pavilion resembles a giant beehive at the centre of a wildflower meadow, and is inspired by the crucial role played by bees and pollination in providing the world's food supply. Visitors enter through an orchard set within a courtyard space enclosed by two walls perforated to resemble a bee hotel. Within these holes we have integrated AV and exhibition displays with information about the bee and its life cycle. The journey continues through the meadow before entering the hive structure, made from a lattice of 169,300 pieces of aluminium and steel.

I was lucky to be asked by Wolfgang Buttress to photograph the UK Pavilion. What a wonderful experience. You can see more images of the pavilion here: http://www.markhadden.co.uk/uk-pavilion-milan/
