The Fluid pavilion is scheduled to make itself noticed and admired at the 2012 World Expo in Yeosu, South Korea. This exhibition space is in part inspired by the whale, and is an organic structure that utilizes the concept of adaptability.

Designers of the structure, Peddle Thorpe Architects (PTA) from Melbourne say the adaptability of the structure will allow it to be used long after its duties at the World Expo. Fluid will latch on to the structure, and float above water while being anchored in the harbor. Its organic design will ensure that the pavilion does not have a negative impact on the coastal ecosystem.


Once its work at the Expo is done, the structure can simply be unlatched from the site and sent on its way to other cities. A floating pavilion with enough space means that its availability to host different types of events will not be limited to its presence at the expo, the structure could travel to a number of places and do away with the need of creating new structures for many events.
