I thought this might be an interesting use for pallets---a hive-like structure complete with
audio components so that a person can listen to a nearby hive.  Be [bee] a nice way to

"Hive (SOUND COLONY) references the visionary architecture of R. Buckminster Fuller,
whose research into energy and material efficiency was inspired by universally occurring
patterns in nature. Equipped with 4 benches and 4 speakers, Hive functions as a gathering
space as well as a sound chamber. In the context of “ISEA 2013 Machine Wilderness”,
Hive was deployed at the Alvarado Urban Farm in downtown Albuquerque, where it provided
a context for a shared, acoustic experience between a nearby bee colony and the farm community
and visitors."

That's a great design - like a 21st century yurt. Cover it with a tarpaulin or something more sturdy and it would be great for many uses: add a telescope, voila, a cheap homemade observatory.
