British Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010

The Shanghai Expo 2010 is looming and some of the pavilions that have gone on display are incredible. This one is from the Brit camp. "The 20 meter high cube-like structure is pierced by 60,000 slim and transparent acrylic rods.

The centerpiece of the pavilion is the seed cathedral, where visitors will be able to explore a variety of seeds of different plants featured on the end of each rod.

It has been designed by Brit architect, Thomas Heatherwick 'The cathedral represents UK's understanding of 'better city, better life,' which also reflects how biological diversity has influenced and improved people's life,' Heatherwick stated."
