OMA has been commissioned by the Beijing Contemporary Art Foundation to design the Chinese Pavilion at the 56th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia

Architecture firm OMA will be designing the Chinese Pavilion at the 56th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.

Under the theme of 'other future', the pavilion brings together the works of Tan Dun, Liu Jiakun, Lu Yang, Wu Wenguang / Caochangdi Work Station and Wen Hui / Living Dance Studio. According to OMA, the design is an immersive environment where the artworks are juxtaposed in a field of projections and stages, connecting the interior and exterior works.
