'whirlpool' aquarium, copenhagen by 3xn

based-on the sea's 'whirl streams' and shoals of fish, ‘whirlpool’ is the name of 3xns winning proposal
for an aquarium in copenhagen. the round centre hall of the building and the different parts are ‘whirled’
in the slightly curved sequence of rooms. the first and longest of the whirlpool’s arms follow the shape
of the landscape and the building, moving into the land. the blue planet building site is at the island of
amager, right at the coast of øresund, north of kastrup havn, the complex is expected to open in 2013. from 'whirlpool' aquarium, copenhagen by 3xn
