The final designs for the £90m Biota! Aquarium by Terry Farrell and Partners have been revealed.

The aquarium, at Silvertown Quays in east London, now has an ETFE foil roof of the type used for the Eden Project in Cornwall and the Beijing aquatics centre. The roof will cover the “biomes” that house plants, fish, free-flying birds and other animals in the aquarium. Newham council is considering the planning application and a decision is expected in February.
