>UK pavilion at shanghai world expo 2010


اگه اکسپوی پارسال کلا دوتا غرفه ی دیدنی داشته باشه، یکی ش همین غرفه‌ی انگلستان بود و دیگری غرفه‌ی خود چین!
خیلی ایده ی جالبی داشت این غرفه‌ی انگلستان!
اومدن گرفتن یه عالمه دونه‌ی گیاهان رو تو شیشه کردن! بعد ازش با این الگو که می بینین این بنای تخیلی رو بنا کردن!

the concept behind thomas heatherwick‘s UK pavilion at shanghai expo 2010, 
is an enclosure that throws outwards from all sides, a mass of long radiating cilia. 

the centerpiece of the pavilion is the seed cathedral, a six storey high cube-like structure, 
pierced by approximately 60 000 x 7.5m long slim transparent acrylic rods which sway gently 
in response to any wind movement. during the day each of these rods act like fibre 
optic filaments, drawing on daylight in order to illuminate the interior. at night, light sources 
at the interior end of each rod allow the whole structure to glow from the outside.

the pavilion is situated on a landscape which resembles paper which once wrapped 
the building, but now lies unfolded on the site. the surrounding space provides an open
venue for public events and along with shelter for visitors.
