“Dandelion: Making of the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010” (2011)

The UK Pavilion – nicknamed ‘Dandelion’ by the Chinese people – was designed by Thomas Heatherwick.

Written by Kate Goodwin, Drue Heinz Curator of Architecture at the Royal Academy, the book shows the development from competition stage to finished pavilion, uncovering the roots of Thomas Heatherwick’s idea. The book is written in English and Mandarin.
