Looking more like craggy cliff than a design pavilion, the Luxembourg Pavilion is one of the many new structures debuting at the Shanghai Expo this year. Showing off "the small European country’s prowess in steel," as Psfk puts it, it succeeds in creating an awesome sight for visitors.

With the theme 'small is beautiful' as its tag line, the Luxembourg pavilion will serve food and drink to the masses. Inspired by the Chinese meaning of the word 'Luxembourg,' it is a literal representation of 'forest and fortress.' Take a look at the gallery above to see the impressive structure and its surrounding gardens. Stats for Craggy Castles Trending: Older & Chilly
