As impressive as the Spain Pavilion is as a standing structure, it's made even more incredible due to its literary design concept. Bridging two cultures together, designer Benedetta Tagliabue created 8524 wicker boards of different tones to spell out the verse of a Chinese poem, according to PSFK.

Yet it doesn't end there. Considering that Spain and China are both home to the wicker-weaving, the Spain Pavilion is an aesthetic representation of that shared tradition. Make sure you check out the images in the gallery above to fully appreciate this Shanghai Expo pavilion.
