cathedral of seeds

the award winning seed cathedral was created by heatherwick studio for the shanghai expo in 2010.

for the seed cathedral they showed off thousands and thousands of seeds collected by the royal botanical gardens in these stunning transparent acrylic rods that glowed and moved with the elements. since the expo, the sculpture has been dismantled but it is remarkable to look back at the shots and video clips. It is truly inspiring work.
