It was replaced by the geodesic dome "The Pavilion".

What was its intended purpose?  And it is ridiculous.  It appears as if it's desperately trying to be futuristic but for no evident reason.

It sort of reminds me of the Norway Pavilion at Expo 2010. I think its purpose was the same as The Pavilion that Bill mentioned; an assembly hall and venue for smaller events like concerts and the Olympic trials.

I had seen a photo of the Assembly Pavilion model a long time ago. When I attended Expo 86 in Vancouver, I thought their "Expo Theater", was very similar in design.
