Riding a Bike in the Danish Pavilion, Shanghai: Looks Like Fun

XPO - BJARKE BIKES THROUGH DANISH PAVILION from BIG on Vimeo.

In our slideshow on the good, the bad and the ugly pavilions in Shanghai, Denmark's, by BIG architects was one of our favourites. It is a giant velodrome with a pool in the middle. In this video, the architect Bjarke Ingels demonstrates how it works; looks like a lot of fun. Warning: The Architect's Newspaper hates the Black Eyed Peas soundtrack.

Here is another video made by the architects before it opened . I find it interesting that the final result had a lot less room for bikes and a lot more for pedestrians, and a physical separation between. The concept was a lot more dangerous. via Archinect
