Created for the Yeosu, South Korea Expo 2012, the One Ocean Thematic Pavilion by Vienna-based firm Soma is made up of a series of cylindrical cones. Suspended between a body of water and land, this bold structure is dynamically designed and visually stunning.

The sci-fi structure is futuristic and highly conceptual. Organic in its shape and form, the One Ocean Thematic Pavilion by Soma features controlled lighting and kinetic textures on its facade. Moveable and multi-functional, this interactive architecture piece is meant to give its visitors a three-dimensional spatial experience.

Part of a former industrial harbor, this temporary pavilion will serve as an "urban beach" after its use for the Yeosu, South Korea Expo 2012. Stats for Cylindrical Coastline Structures Trending: Older & Mild
