- Sep. 8th, 2010
The six-storey UK Pavilion--"A Pavilion of Ideas" is shaped like a huge "light box" with thousands of spines tipped with tiny colored lights that can sense the wind and display various images. The night will be its light show moment.
The largest collection of wild plant seeds from Kew's Millennium Seed Bank, is displayed inside the pavilion. Put inside 60,000 spines and well-protected, most of the seeds can still grow after the expo session. The seeds sketch the magnificent picture of life potential and the sustainability. Kunming seed bank, the Chinese branch of the project, mainly provides the seed samples for the pavilion.
