In shanghai world expo 2010, here is an update of the british pavilion designed by thomas heatherwick of heatherwick studio.
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.

'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.
