Ride the Danish pavilion in Shanghai

We have seen the Danish pavilion on its conceptual stage, during construction, completed and finally opened to the public.

And now we got the chance to “ride” it with from BIG, and get a closer look at the experience that the giant loop of the pavilion offers to the visitors, to have a little taste of the danish way of life.

    is it a special request to ride the bicycle?
    Because when I was there, they just keep pushing for the flow of the public in and out of pavilion, and the bicycles are all locked.
    anyway, great job and I love the cycling experience through pavilion. good job BIG!

      Most Danes don’t use helmets. Many tend to view them as unnecessary because most drivers and bikers are used to being around and looking for bikes. Some even view requiring helmets for bicycles as a deterrent for people who might otherwise try riding.

    I agree with internautas. This guy’s self-promotion is tiresome. Plus if he’s so proud of being danish, why does he need to do dutch architecture?
