The Seed Cathedral

Have you heard about the award winning Seed Cathedral created by Heatherwick Studio for the Shanghai Expo in 2010? I came across it recently and it blew my mind along with all of the other work from Thomas Heatherwick's Studio.

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. How breathtaking and what an undertaking! 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.
