Seed Cathedral

This is the building I am doing for my architectonic assignment. It only opened yesterday and is the UK pavilion at the Shanghai world expo this year. The building is meant to reflect the UK's relationship with nature and conservation. It is made up of 70,00 transparent acrylic rods each with some seeds embeded in the end. These rods draw light into the pavilion in the day and direct it out at night making it like one huge fiber optic lamp. Pretty cool really.
