Venice Biennale: National Pavilions 1

The concept of each country showing their best colors at the Venice Biennale began from 1895, in the same spirit of nationalism (or chauvinism) of the World's Fair. This year, proceeding straight ahead from the Giardini entrance, we take you on part one of a grand tour through the best of the national pavilions.

I was greeted by the conspicuous yellow signage of the Danish pavilion, and recognized the iconic language of the Danish Architecture Center. Taking its success as the bearer of the World's Most Livable City, Denmark positions Copenhagen's master planning and architectural masterpieces as the potential answer for many of the world's urban questions.
