The Batumi Aquarium in Georgia

Surprised at the pack of pebbles in place of an aquarium? This is actually what the Batumi Aquariumin Georgia is supposed to look like when built at the Georgian port. The design conceived by Denmark-based Henning Larsen Architects, was selected from a competition. The larger than life pebbles are a representation of the smooth pebbles found near the Batumi beach, reflecting the on-going process of the sea.
Each of the four pebbles would contain marine life from different regions which include the “Aegean Sea & the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Black Sea & the Red Sea“. The four realms would have a central hallway for visitors to sit, enjoy, relax, shop etc. The aquarium in addition to being an attractive experience in understanding and enjoying,  the diverse forms of the aqua world would also open up possibilities  for outdoor marine research and learning.
