the seed cathedral

        This fuzzy, furry building is the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo. I would LOVE to see this in person. 
The building is magnificent. And a little apocalyptic too, in a ‘we better save all the seeds for the end of the world” sort of way. 
Maybe someone will write a futuristic sci-fi story with characters salvaging seeds from the pavilion.
Designed by thomas 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.”
