Architecture at the World Expo 2010

The United Kingdom's Pavilion, titled the Seed Cathedral, may be the most memorable if it comes out as the designer, Thomas Heatherwick, of London based Heatherwick Studio planned.

The Crystal Palace, which housed the first World Expo in 1851 in London, stunned visitors with its advanced, creative design, featuring 13,000 exhibits inside its glass and iron frame. For the more than six million people who visited the site during the Expo, the Crystal Palace portrayed the United Kingdom as a cutting-edge nation and British organizers are hoping that this year’s Seed Cathedral at Expo 2010 in Shanghai will do the same.
