·[ Bees!

A dual relevance has appeared; the tallow the building is using can be used for soap, or as is (possibly with essential oils for scent) as candle wax. Another popular ingredient in candles is beeswax. A mixture of the two waxes would produce a more interesting, and probably better smelling product. In addition, as I have looked at space frames, and decided on hexagonal and triangular structural forms, inspiration for form can be drawn from ancient architects themselves, bees. Bees have been kept by humans for over 5000 years, and will have been building hives for thousands of years prior, perfecting the technique. The shapes produced are beautiful and efficient, qualities desired for my factory.
