Bali 2010: Marine Research Centre in Indonesia

Arquitectum invites candidates worldwide to enter an open architecture competition, ‘BALI 2010’, for the design of a submarine research laboratory

The Project:
The project entails the development of a submarine laboratory, parallel to the shore, incorporating a view of the sea horizon. Harmonising with Balinese architecture, the building will serve as a landmark for Kuta Beach.

• The research centre is to be used for submarine study, as well as for both housing and leisure activities for the users (the scientists).
• The centre may occupy no more than a 3,000 sqm area. The project will be located approximately 100 meters off shore and parallel to it, within a determined perimeter at the sea (available in the attached site plan).
