on the boards: British Pavilion (Shanghai Expo)
Thomas Heatherwick has recently released images for the British pavilion for the 2010 Shanghai Exposition. The six-storey pavilion under the theme "Better City, Better Life" is pierced by 60,000 transparent rods that will illuminate the interior of the pavilion with natural light during the day, whilst at night, transporting artificial light from the inside to the exterior, allowing the structure to glow.
