China has lined up a strikingly interdisciplinary list of participants for their 2015 pavilion, among them filmmaker Wu Wenguang, choreographer Wen Hui, composer Tan Dun, artist Lu Yang, and architect Liu Jiakun. China tapped starchitect Rem Koolhaas’s firm OMA to design the setting for their offer to the 56th Biennale. Coming off of an exceedingly well received effort curating the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale, the firm plans to position pieces both inside and outside of the physical structure on a series of stages with multimedia projections serving as a backdrop.
