Architecture in motion, transforming and changing area, iridescent skeleton and leather, freehand tattoo. It is “Reptile”, a mobile exhibition pavilion project designed by Rabatanalab an Italian architecture office and by Gakkin a Japanese artist. It is a bending opera whose changing shape adapts to the suggestive features of the place it is exhibited.

A rail system is activated by an hydraulic integrated system and managed by a central unit with programmable logic controller (PLC) that enables Reptile to change shape and position allowing visitors to walk inside and in the meanwhile to shift through time and all changing physical space.

It is a living system assembled by a wooden framework sets to rails through four properly designed joints that allow the rotation of the structure.  Special attention has been paid to the air channeling system with an expedient of two combined leathers that attached to the ribs will ease ventilation during the heat of the day.

External leather layer, an archetype crystallized of semi-sedentary populations , will be processed with hand-painted thermo chromic varnish that according to the changing daily temperature reached, will confer distinctive features to the structure. The exhibition space will turn into a dynamic one and walking visitors will be not more surrounded by a static urban context but by a continuing changing skyline.
