The Blue Planet Aquarium in Copenhagen

The Blue Planet Aquarium in Copenhagen

3XN Architects recently released these photographs of the Blue Planet aquarium in Copenhagen. They designed it to resemble the shapes created by swirling water, and it looks like a giant, metallic whirlpool. The aerial view shows the various water placements within the space. 3XN says,

“We wanted to create an adventure, a story about being carried under water into an unknown world full of fascinating experiences. With this in mind, we came up with the idea of a whirlpool."

When it opens, the aquarium is expected to attract over 700,000 visitors per year.
