NYC Aquatrium by Lissoni Architecttura

Read More:

NYC Aquatrium is an architectural concept which was designed by Lissoni Architecttura that has been selected as the First Place Winner of the NYC Aquarium & Public Waterfront open ideas competition.

The project creates a dynamic system that interacts with its surroundings, offering multiple ways to experience the water world. The site is excavated to become a large and unique water basin, with the Aquarium and the Marine Centre a submerged island accessed via a pathway. A sloping beachfront covers the Parking area to form a panoramic public space, while a boardwalk surrounds the basin and becomes a floating ring connecting the two waterfronts and encompassing the Aquarium and its sliding roof, a green island that closes to become a planetarium protecting the arena and the biome domes within.
