Seed Cathedral by Thomas Heatherwick. Representing the UK at the 2010 Shanghai Expo, the sculptural architecture comprises acrylic rods, each one bearing a plant seed at its inner tip.

The Rolling Bridge, located on the Paddington Basin in London, was created by Thomas Heatherwick. It is twelve meters long and opens every Friday at noon by slowly and smoothly curling until it transforms from a conventional, straight bridge, into a circular sculpture which sits on the bank of the canal.
