Danish practice designs 2000 m2 aquarium on the Black Sea coast

Henning Larsen Architects has won a competition to design an aquarium in Georgia on the Black Sea coast.

The design by the Danish practice for the 2000 m2 Batumi Aquarium was inspired by pebbles.

The formation constitutes four self-supporting exhibition areas with each stone representing a unique marine biotype – the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Black Sea and the Red Sea and finally the more interactive exhibition space for teaching and “edutainment”.

The new aquarium will replace the older, existing aquarium and will be situated on the beach side.
