Fascinating Cliff Hanger Hotel at The Grand Canyon - Cliff hanger Hotel is the ultimate hotel experience based on the concept of suspension in space and immersion in environment. With its modular design, the experience can be recreated in many locations across the world. Such locations could include the Golden Gate Bridge, California’s redwood forests and an ice fissure in the Andes.

UK Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai Expo: The Seed Cathedral is a box, 15 metres high and 10 metres tall. From every surface protrude silvery hairs, consisting of 60,000 identical rods of clear acrylic, 7.5 metres long, which extend through the walls of the box and lift it into the air. Inside the pavilion, the geometry of the rods forms a space described by a curvaceous undulating surface. 250,000 are seeds cast into the glassy tips of the hairs.
