Description


The Danish pavilion in Shanghai EXPO 2010 should not only exhibit the Danish virtues. Through interaction, the visitors are able to experience some of Copenhagen's best attractions – the city bike, the harbor bath, the nature playground and an ecological picnic. With the pavilion we relaunch the bike in Shanghai, as a symbol of modern lifestyle and sustainable urban development. The pavilion's 1500 city bikes are offered for general use to the visitors during EXPO 2010. After the world exhibition it can be moved and relocated in for example Peoples Park - as a transferium for the bikes of Shanghai. A harbor bath is located in the heart of the pavilion, filled with seawater from Copenhagen harbor. It is the original Little Mermaid sculpture visiting China as a specific example of the idea that the Danish pavilion offers the real experience of the real Danish city life. Bjarke Ingels Group
