UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010

May 4th, 2010

I’ve been holding off for a long time to post some photos of the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010. So here are finally some photos of the finished pavilion, I guess you all know about this master piece designed by Heatherwick Studio by now. If you don’t, ArchDaily has all the info you’ll need.

    This design of UK pavillion and the previous one of this Heatherwick Studio is coming first from the french R&Sie(n) group in 2001

    But in this case it was not a pilosity to produce a decor for Chinese word fair but as a powerstation…for transferring sun energy in the Unplug sustainability…
    Why architects are always reducing ideas to aesthetic scleroses ?
