Mobile buildings and museums could adorn the cities of the future, architect Zaha Hadid has announced during the launch of her UFO-shaped art pavilion in Hong Kong.

The “Mobile Art” pavilion is currently on the first stop of a promotional tour for French label Chanel.

Iraqi-born Hadid, who is known for her futuristic designs, told Reuters that she believes in the idea of temporary or mobile pieces as a way of “regenerating the city in an interesting way”.

The pavilion is modelled along spiralling shapes and has been designed to exhibit the work of 20 contemporary artists.
