Design Inspiration

Did you know that Manchester’s rooftops are home to many thriving beehives? This is your chance to meet one very special Bee who loves to keep busy and is always cheery, buzzing about the trail, collecting news and stories from all the other Bees along the way. Buzzi likes to make new friends, so use your Bee in the City app to say ‘hello’ to Manchester’s one and only augmented reality Bee.

Wild in Art (WIA) is a leading creative producer of mass-appeal, global, public art events. Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2018, it is marking the milestone with an exciting collaboration with independent, innovative animation studio Factory, and award-winning, digital marketing agency Mediaworks. Together, specially for Bee in the City, they have developed WIA’s first-ever, interactive, augmented reality (AR) sculpture!
