This is How Urban Agency Made a 150kg Concrete Model

As part of the Danish contribution to the 2016 Venice Biennale Urban Agency embarked on a challenging feat: the construction a 1:50 concrete model. The firm—based in Dublin, Copenhagen and Lyon—contributed three projects to the "Human Architectures" exhibition at this year's Danish Pavilion.

The video shows the careful, painstaking process of molding, setting and assembling the 150kg model. Urban Agency told ArchDaily,

"Enjoy watching our conceptual 1:50 concrete model come to life! This short film shows the process of creating the model, while the model tells the story behind the architecture. After many endeavors on the way, the 150kg heavy design arrived safely in Venice alongside our two other "Human Architectures" and will be on display in the Danish Pavilion until the 27th of November. "
