“2010 Deckchair Dreams” arrived in Shanghai for the World Expo in cooperation with Shanghai Botanical Garden. “Seed” became a big theme for the project, because the show’s exhibition area -- the UK Pavilion -- is a dazzling cube formed by 60,000 crystalline spines containing seeds of 24,000 plant species.

“Deckchair Dreams” is a series of projects starting from 2005 sponsored by The Royal Parks Foundation.
