Construction has begun on Foster + Partners’ new National Museum of Marine Science and Technology in Taiwan
The building, which sits next to the Badouzi harbour, will connect the waterfront to an existing fishing village to the east of the site and will be focused around a new public plaza.
It will include aquariums, a shop, café and a restaurant.
In a statement the practice said: ‘Combining innovative tank design with the opportunity to engage with a wide variety of species, the experience for visitors will be unique – the project aims to set a new benchmark for aquariums worldwide.’
