Haute Couture Spaceship Travels From City to City in Segments

In order to send a spaceship-like pavilion on a journey across the world, Zaha Hadid architects created this Chanel Pavilion, a portable 7500 square foot art venue that will travel from Hong Kong to New York to Moscow to Paris over the next year. The steel structure breaks apart into segments that are no more than seven feet each, and the whole thing can be built like Legos in less than a week.
