Sun Hive - THE conservation hive ?

I got slightly stumped when somebody asked me the simple question;  "What are the advantages of a Sun Hive over a conventional hive?" After rattling off a rambling list about not for honey, uninterrupted brood, thermal distribution etc.  I wish had just said:

"A hive for bees"

For me, it gets people talking about what bee's need and it's a refreshing way to restart your relationship with bees. Here are pictures of my Sun Hive. You have to really really want one to make one - that's part of the restart.
