The Bay Lights is an iconic light sculpture designed by artist Leo Villareal. The sculpture will be installed and illuminated over the course of the Bay Bridge's 75th Anniversary, which extends from late 2011 to 2012.
Called Seed Cathedral, the wooden structure is pierced by 60,000 fibre-optic rods that each contain plant seeds at their tips. These rods will draw light into the pavilion during the day and direct it outwards at night. After the expo the rods and seeds will be distributed to schools in China and the UK. dezeen
