Fur Ball at Shanghai Expo 2010

I love fur balls. this fur ball looking building is the UK pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010 designed by Thomas Heatherwick (post in Dezeen). It is called seed cathedral. Don't be deceived by its soft appearance cus it's nothin cuddly. It's more like...a sea urchin or an ant eater. However, those spines won't hurt you because they are made of fibre optic rods. The design is made to draw in light to the interior at daytime and ...render a halo like glow at night through it's fiber optic filaments...ohhh...can't wait to see it finished. Anyway, again it will not hurt...unless I push you to it.
