Thomas Heatherwick and his Studio

The first picture is the Seed Cathedral, Shanghai Expo 2010.
The other piece is called Sitooterie. The structure is part of a collection of artworks in the grounds of Barnards Farm Gardens, West Horndon, Essex, UK.
A cube punctured by 5,000 long windows emit light. The project is made from anodized aluminum and the windows are tubes glazed with a transparent orange acrylic. Inside the central cube one light source illuminates all the windows and a few of the tubes provide seating.
