Heatherwick and Adams Kara Taylor in Shanghai pavilion win

The Heatherwick and Adams Kara Taylor team has won the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's competition to design the British Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai Expo.

The design team beat entries from Zaha Hadid, Marks Barfield, Avery Associates, Draw Architects and Eight - a team led by John McAslan which included Carmody Groarke, Nord, Surface, Project Orange and Brisac Gonzalez.

Atelier Ten is the environmental engineer and Casson Mann the exhibition designer for the project.

The £10 million pavilion - part of the World Expo's theme of 'Better City, Better Life' - will have to handle up to 40,000 visitors a day over six months.

It will showcase Britain's culture, sport, media, education and business, as well as highlighting and promoting policies and technologies in low-carbon urban developments.
