I added this place to my bucket list a while ago, but never shared it. This addition to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA, has some amazing architecture.
Its biomorphic shape consists of over 800 panels that respond to its surrounding weather and lighting conditions.
It also makes a statement about human impact on the planet.
"We are taking a unique, unconventional approach in creating a space where the focus is on the one species that is affecting all others on Earth: humans."
– Dr. Jerry R. Schubel
