If you’re in Beijing at the end of this month, don’t miss the next chance to see the Dandelion exhibition when it tours to Beijing Design Week. On show at 751 D Park, the exhibition tells the story of the making of this unique pavilion through drawings, photography and a film by UK film-maker James Nutt.

 

The exhibition reveals the complexity of the project from the initial idea, through development and experimentation, to the construction and ultimately the life of this unusual building.

 

The book The Dandelion: The Making of the UK Pavilion at Shanghai World Expo 2010 which accompanies the exhibition is also currently available to buy online from Cornerhouse and Amazon.
