The task of designing a large aquarium pre sents architects with a multiplicity of challenges: the fundamental elements of interior design - light, colour, and surfaces - must be meshed with special requirements concerning building technology.
This book takes a comprehensive look at the development of architecture and display methods for artificial underwater worlds. Based on analysis of more than 50 historical and contemporary buildings, the editors formulate ten parameters to serve as guidelines in the design of future buildings.
