Dezeen reports that the Danish studio NORD Architects has released designs for the planned Marine Education Centre in Malmö, Sweden.
The city, just across the Øresund Strait from Danish capital Copenhagen, selected NORD through a competition for architects to design a center that “strives to provide users with a deeper understanding of marine life.”
The design is of a 7,535-sf visitor center with an overhanging roof structure that covers an external aquatic learning environment.
According to Dezeen, the education center will be set in a 32,291-sf landscape that includes small ponds and plantings intended to mimic an assortment of marine ecologies and create “an engaging learning landscape” for visitors to experience nature hands-on.
