Text description provided by the architects. The main design decisions of Antalya Aquarium project are determined with desire of vanishing in silhouette and creating harmony with topography. Pulling back of the ground floor, a shaded public area is created to beware from sun and profit from wind.


This shaded public area is the point of approach, gather and diffusion of the aquarium project. Also the shell of this area determines the information and fast-food areas, amphitheater and box office with its curves and waves.

The path continues with cave fish, world rivers, jellyfish, Turkey fish, predatory fish, sharks, the main 5 million liters tank and finals with 131 m tunnel. The each stop in this path is designed with its own character.
