The Danish Pavilion at EXPO 2010 is an opportunity to try out Danish city life. You can visit the original and famous Little Mermaid by foot or by city bike. You can let your children run around on the playground. You can enjoy a picnic and dip your toes in the water in the Harbour Pool. The Danish Pavilion is wrapped around the Harbour Pool. The building itself is a monolithic steel structure designed as a double spiral with pedestrian and cycling lanes taking you from the ground and through two curves up to a level of 12 metres and down again. In this way, you can experience the Danish exhibition both inside and outside at two speeds - as a calm stroll - with time to absorb the surroundings and as a bicycle trip, where the city and city life drift past. The pavilion's external façade is made of perforated steel. In the evening time, the façade becomes a sequenced instrument of interactive light illuminating the passers-by.
