The Beehive by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)
Executive Wing of the New Zealand Parliament Buildings, Wellington. Scottish architect Sir Basil Spence provided the conceptual blueprints in 1964 that were subsequently developed by Fergus Sheppard and the Ministry of Works. Construction began in 1969 and lasted ten years; structural design features cutting-edge earthquake-proofing measures later adopted in the refurbishment of Parliament House in the 1990s. Unlike the rest of Parliament, the Beehive receives only limited attention in the guided tour.
