Batumi Aquarium, located in Batumi, Georgia, Designed by Henning Larsen Architects is inspired by the characteristic pebbles of the Batumi beach, continually shaped by the wash of the waves throughout millennia. The building will be situated in the Georgian seaport of Batumi and will stand out as an iconic rock formation – visible from both land and sea.
The four dispersed aquarium exhibitions are connected by a central, multipurpose space including café, auditorium and retail functions with views of the black sea and Batumi beach as scenic backdrop. Visitors gather in the central space to convene, play, eat, shop and relax before continuing their adventures through the exhibitions.
Batumi Aquarium will become a modern, cultural aquarium offering visitors an educational, entertaining and visually stimulating journey through the different seas. Unfolding around the aquarium, a landscape of different sea archipelagos provides attractive opportunities for innovative outdoor research and learning, public space and meeting places along the beach.
The building’s significant expression inspired by nature will not only make Batumi Aquarium a spectacular new landmark in Georgia but also a state-of-the-art contribution to exploring life underneath the sea surface.
