My first thought was that the pavilion resembled an airplane. According to this article, that was done intentionally. https://goo.gl/Fhh9mM (I hope this shortened url works.)

Excellent find, Fritz G. I'm going for a giant hotdog airliner as subtext.

To me, the top photo looks like an upside-down rowboat.

If it's supposed to be a hot dog, all I can say is a wiener with a vein that big on top ain't going into my mouth!

An upside-down Viking longship, I'd say. I doubt many visitors knew what they were supposed to be seeing.
