UK Pavilion for Shanghai World Expo 2010 wins RIBA’s Lubetkin Prize 2010

The hugely popular ‘Seed Cathedral’ designed by Thomas Heatherwick has been named as the 2010 winner of the Royal Institute of British Architects’ Lubetkin Prize. Constructed using 60,000 acrylic rods, each containing a different type of seed, the UK Pavilion resembles a gigantic dandelion and has been a big hit at the Shanghai World Expo, taking in over 2 million visitors in the last few months.

The prize is named after the world-renowned architect Berthold Lubetkin (1901-1990). The winner is presented with a unique cast concrete plaque, based loosely on Lubetkin’s design for the Penguin Pool at London Zoo, commissioned by the RIBA and designed and made by the artist Petr Weigl.
