Dezeen informed about the Spanish Pavilion in Shangai  Expo 2010. Projected by Benedetta Tagliabue, this Barcelona based italian architect got inspired in handicrafted wickerwork technique and transformed it into a constructive system.The basket like looking structure filters the light and becomes a climatic membrane. The constructive material, common to Spain and China, is also a symbol of the union between East and West Cultures in the world.
