Looking like a hedgehog with over 60,000 7.5m-long transparent acrylic rods shooting out of the building, the United Kingdom Pavilion will debut at the Shanghai World Expo. The cost? Only about $40 Million. Aside from impaling skydivers, the revolutionary structure is expected to host almost 250,000 people a day.

    That's really cool. I must have taken a long time to design and build. I am going to have to find out how that was done now.
