Drijvend Paviljoen (Floating Pavilion)
- Opening hours
Floating Pavilion is a complex consisting of three floating half-spheres. The structure will be 12 metres tall, with a total floor area the size of four tennis courts, and will be fully relocatable. For the first five years, the futuristic pavilion will be moored in the Rijnhaven, serving as an exhibition and reception space.
This pavilion will be remarkable not only because of its shape, consisting of three floating half-spheres, but also because of its climate change resilient, innovative, sustainable and flexible qualities. A pilot and a catalyst for floating construction efforts in Rotterdam, the floating pavilion will remain moored in the Rijnhaven until 2015, after which it will be shipped off elsewhere, to be deployed in another part of Stadshavens.
