As a cooperation between Greenpeace Slovakia, cultural event Medzicentrum and Stanica, Žilina several works related with life of bees were created. Cité Radieuse is a fully working reconstructed beehive that resembles one of the bloc of flats situated close to Stanica Zárečie cultural nod in Žilina.
The society of bees was often compared to life of humans and used as a symbol for a perfect, utopian society, where the individual serves a greater purpose of the whole - a state, a nation. Many architects used beehives as a reference - some influenced by organic shape of natural beehives, other by those, created by man.
One of the first apartment buildings was a concept by Le Corbusier, originally called Honeycomb apartments.  Some years later, this idea inspired growing building construction for a "new man" in Eastern bloc socialist countries. Some of the propaganda posters even featured bees as a symbol for construction of a new future.
