The Chinese Pavilion presented at the Venice Biennale challenges the role of the architect and what exactly the role entails. To put it more succinctly as stated on DesignBoom, the exhibition "highlights issues regarding the perception and research of architecture in the country."

The pavilion is set up with chairs stacked in an interesting manner for visitors to view videos and pamphlets that teach about the background of the industry, where it's going and when the career entails. It also questions how the condition of society in the country effects architecture as a whole, which is quite the broad and challenging inquiry.

The Chinese Pavilion was done by the company TCA Think Tank, an organization that was founded in Shanghai in 2011.
