Hive Apartments, located in Melbourne, Australia by ITN Architects, fuses two of my favorite loves: architecture and hip hop. Besides the beautiful exterior seen in the slideshow above, this complex is attractive to me because of its function as well. It carries out a graffiti theme throughout the exterior and interior and the video below walks us through the building and how some of the graffiti pieces are load-bearing parts of the structure. So they had to be placed first to support the building under construction and upon completition. Pretty cool. Take a look at the photos and video and see for yourself.
