3XN architects proposal for the danish pavilion at the shanghai expo 2010 is easily recognisable from a distance. with its two colours white and red and simple rectangles, the building says denmark more clearly than any other image or symbol.

the pavilion is in the shape of the danish flag on all sides – also top and bottom. the four red rectangular fields, thus, form eight blocks and the white in the flag can be opened in both directions to form an inner square or urban space at the heart of the building. the total volume is tilted slightly to one side, and emphasised in strategic places, thus creating an entrance and an exit that provides shelter from the rain and shade on sunny days.

  • To worldexpoblog.com if you read the text it actually says proposal and not winning entry.

  • This is not the Danish pavilion; probably just a design entry. [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/worldexpoblog/sets/72157617434780424/]The real thing [/url] is altogether much more imaginative, IMHO, and stars Copenhagen’s The Little Mermaid.
