the danish pavilion by bjarke ingels group (BIG) at shanghai expo 2010 allows visitors to experience some of copenhagen’s best attractions through their city bikes, the harbor 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.
