Pearl building

Idea for ‘aqualife’ building, drawings, 2015

Function (general)

A building dedicated to the diversity, fragility and importance of sealife, its conservation, bringing the visitor on multiple levels closer to the matter by embarkingĀ a journey full of discoveries and exploration.


The shape of the building is based on that of a pearl, found in certain Mollusk (oeuysters, clams, etc..). The windows are made off very dark coloured, almost black glass. A large, round square surrounds the building. Behind the square borders, a green and rich garden thrives (with artificially made pools, where people can swim). The visitor is allowed to walk in the garden.
