The Beehive among Parliament Buildings in Wellington, New Zealand

The architectural standout on the 11 acre Parliament Buildings campus is the Executive Wing. Within its ten floors are offices for the Executive Branch including New Zealand’s prime minister plus cabinet ministers. Locals lovingly call it The Beehive because its round and tapered design by Sir Basil Spence resembles a traditional skep bee house. The iconic structure was topped with copper before opening in 1977.
