Building Shaped as Large River Pebbles...!

Henning Larsen Architects competition entry won them first place for their aquarium design for the Batumi Aquarium in the Georgian seaport of Batumi. It is exactly what it looks like, an aquarium shaped like a pile of river pebbles. The smooth surface, soft curves and simple idea makes for a beautiful overall design and a wonderful new landmark for Georgia.
Batumi aquarium will become a modern, cultural aquarium offering visitors an educational, entertaining and visually stimulating journey through the different seas. the central, multipurpose space in connection with the aquarium features a cafĂ© and retail functions and its flexible layout makes it well-suited for presentations and workshops.
