Space exploration deserves the attention of any government. One of the best ways to promote space science in any country is through the museum. Modern museums are not merely places where knowledge is transmitted, but also places where interactive social relationships take place. X-Terrestreum: Sci-Space Museum is designed as an iconic building that breaks from rigidity, aspiring instead to express the sense of infinity of the universe. It generates a panoramic architecture without corners that expresses the fluidity of its architectural form. In addressing this issue, the design concept of X-Terrestreum: Sci-Space Museum implemented the theory of "fluidity in architecture" that enhances the effect and impact towards the design approach of a museum which is associated with space exploration. Fluidity in architecture influences the exhibition concept which provides a sensation to create a new identity for both visitors and exhibit. It also provides an intuitive visual and interactive physical guide between spaces and visitors. The inter-relationship between the theory of fluidity in architecture and space exploration has generated the fresh ideas and alternative approaches that has been formative in the architectural design of X-Terrestreum.
