danish pavilion at shanghai world expo 2010

The danish pavilion by BIG architects at Shanghai expo 2010 allows visitors to
experience some of copenhagen's best attractions through their city bikes, the harbour
bath and a natural playground.

The pavilion aims to relaunch the bike in shanghai as a symbol of a modern lifestyle
and sustainable urban development. At the entrance 1500 city bikes are available to
visitors, in which they are invited to ride throughout the 4 levels of the pavilion
connected by a loop shaped.

At the center of the harbor bath sits the little mermaid, a statue which has become
a symbol for denmark, which has been temporarily moved to china.

Thanks to designboom. This is a great steal!
