Stunning Whale-like Structure Can Float Away

Designed by Melbourne-based Peddle Thorpe Architects, Fluid is a whale-inspired pavilion that is sure to be a showstopper at the much-anticipated 2012 World Expo in Yeosu, South Korea.

The floating exhibition space is designed around the concept of adaptability, making the structure useful for many different scenarios. The interior of the pavilion is open, capable of hosting various types of events during the Expo. Once its work at the Expo is complete, the structure can simply be unlatched from the site and sail away to other Asian cities.

As a metaphor of change for the emerging city of Yeosu, Fluid will be anchored to a harbor and has the ability to rise and fall with the tides. Extremely organic in form, Fluid appears as an aquatic animal with it's flowing lines and smooth facade. The architects hope that the awesome structure will encourage collaboration between the Asian and Pacific countries, especially with regards to the preservation of oceans and ecosystems.
