The Hive

The Hive in Worcester. Some love it some hate it. I am afraid I think it is hideous.

This might explain why your image shows it fading away, Bill.
Bill Phillips: If only Ray, if only
it might be hideous but your image of it is quite pleasing, Bill. i like the clean feel and the variety of lines
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ayush. The zig zag shadow is my favourite bit
I like how you've kind of blown out the edges
Bill Phillips: I'd rather like to blow out the middle but both my daughters, and my son in law work there

But you have presented it to us with brilliance, Bill!
Bill Phillips: You can judge it for yourself soon Ginnie

You did a great job capturing it...and we never know what is in the mind of the designer and how much money there is.
Bill Phillips: It cost £63 million and is said by some to represent the Malvern Hills or the kilns of the Worcester porcelain factory. I think the architect was more likely nissed as a pewt (swap the fist letters of the first and last words) when he designed it.

I think it is a fine and upstanding erection
Bill Phillips: It leaks

Black Monday - but the best of the Hive in Worcester might be its honey-like colour - an interesting, elegant photo, I like in particular the mysterious zick-zack- shadows on the staircase.
Chris might have slept well.
Bill Phillips: Hopefully I will be able to show it to you

Makes the viaduct look good though ;o)
Bill Phillips: It is a handsome viaduct....19th century, naturally. 68 Arches and spans 935 yards
You've done a good job, for hideous! The zig-zag shadow caught my eye, too smile
Bill Phillips: My favourite bit of the picture Martin

You are showing the magnificent Hive off very well Bill. I would have tried to make it look awful if I felt like you.
Bill Phillips: I recall your enthusiasm for the building. Is it worth £63 million?

Your right what dose it house
Bill Phillips: It is primarily the new public and University library. It also houses the city archives

Maybe so although I've not seen it for myself. It looks good here, though, and I like all the patterns and shapes you're captured.
Bill Phillips: The tiles cladding the building are gold coloured and to my eyes revolting Alan
This is lovely Bill! despite all!
Bill Phillips: Pleased you like the picture Ronky. The building has its' fans.
You've made something you consider to be hideous look pretty good in this presentation, Bill. I like it!
Bill Phillips: If I tell you all the tiles you see cladding the building are gold coloured........
Very nice study in white... what is the building's purpose?
Bill Phillips: It is the new public and University library and also houses various council services.
Indeed not the most attractive of buildings, rather like the Curve in Leicester, a new theatre, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curve_(theatre)
Bill Phillips: I seem to recall a horrible cinema complex in Leicester.Looked like it was covered with cooking foil. The Curve isn't too bad really
I sort of like it and sort of dislike it. Maybe it depends what mood you're in. You've done it justice though, Bill.
Bill Phillips: You really need to see it in reality Pauline
Some's up your pictures Bill,dire.
Bill Phillips: Joseph has now mastered blowing a raspberry. I will get him to blow one at a picture of you
A little voodoo to make it fade away? smile
It seems to disapear slowly Bill!
I find it hideous too.

As long as they keep libraries alive who bloody cares what they look like. It is the local library isn't it?
Probably would be OK if they kept bees in it smile

If the place is hideous, honour it with a great conversion and presentation.
