This pavilion presents Man and Color, an adventure in color, motion and sound. The exterior of the pavilion is round, with 112 fins painted in a spectrum of vivid colors surrounding the circular steel frame.

Seen from Expo-Express , Minirai or the ground. It appears to change its color. Entering the pavilion, the visitor is carried away by a world of moving color. Using a completely unique process, this remarkable structure actually places one inside a kaleidoscope. The show proceeds through a 12 minute "day" from sunrise to nightfall, during which one the experiences the emotional, psychological and even physical effects of color.

The pavilion is dedicated to color in daily life, and dramatizes how chemistry, through color, contributes to the excitement of life. Chaming guides, all former "Miss Canada" contestants, escort visitors. Kaleidoscope is on the south side of ile Notre-Dame.
