Postman’s Park’s Memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice

February 20 2017


Today we want to recommend the Blue Planet Aquarium, with swirl, and designed by the Danish studio 3XN that opened to the public in Copenhagen at the end of March 2013.

The building consists of a series of curved wings, designed to mimic the shapes generated by water swirls, and is lined with bright aluminum shingles reminiscent of the fish’s scales.

With around 7 million liters of water, Blue Planet is the largest aquarium in Europe and contains a total of 53 aquariums and exhibition areas, and houses more than 450 different species of fish and creatures that can be found in rivers, lakes and oceans.

The exhibits are divided between curved wings and there is no fixed route throughout the building, hoping to reduce the queues of the most popular aquariums. Each exhibition has its own theme and entrance from the lobby, where images and sound are used to introduce the atmosphere of the diffrent exhibition spaces.

The main entrance leads to a circular hallway in the center of the building, where visitors can see through a glass roof a swimming pool directly above their head.

“Our desire was to bring our visitors to the world of fish”, said 3XN partner Kim Herforth Nielsen. “The design of The Blue Planet is based on the story about water and life under the sea. We visualize construction as a whirlwind that draws visitors to the depths and fascinating experiences among fish and marine animals around the world”.

Located on the seafront, near the airport of the city, the aquarium is expected to attract 700,000 visitors a year.
