The Seed Cathedral

I've just been marvelling at the beautiful, inspiring work of Thomas Heatherwick. I would love to visit the British Pavillion or 'Seed Cathedral' at the Shanghai Expo.

"The studio’s concept is an enclosure that throws out from all faces a mass of long, radiating cilia. Their length means they gently sway in response to any wind movement. It rests on its soft forest in an urban field, surrounded by a concrete canopy that resembles unfolded wrapping paper."
