The Henning Larsen Architects-designed Danish Pavilion has opened to the public on Ipanema Beach to celebrate Denmark's participation in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The pavilion is the only national pavilion at the games, and contains displays featuring Danish companies and products. The design takes inspiration from the nation's seafaring and yachting traditions, while programmable LED lights allow the pavilion to resemble a number of different flags from bird's eye view.

Entitled “Heart of Denmark,” the pavilion will serve as a gathering point for Danish athletes, representatives and visitors, and will host a number of exhibitions and activities dedicated to Danish design, innovation, art and culture. Located in a high-traffic area for both tourists and locals, the pavilion will offer views to the Atlantic Ocean and of the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer on Corcovado Mountain.

The pavilion contains 3250 square feet (300 square meters) of covered space, including a bar, a press room and exhibition area, sheltered below a lightweight structure technique consisting of aluminum masts, sailing canvas and clear acrylic. An amphitheater will allow visitors to enjoy the views or watch the Olympics on a big screen.
