At Den Blå Planet National Aquarium of Denmark, designed by 3XN, visitors are drawn into an underwater world through its whirlpool shape. From above, the building’s contours are redolent of a starfish, while visitors approaching the building from the front might be astonished by the silver-grey waves that look as if they are about to wash over them. Up close, the façade patterning, created out of more than 33,000 diamond-shaped shingles, looks and feels like fish scales. Den Blå Planet contains about 7,000,000 litres of water divided into 53 exhibits, and is home to approximately 20,000 animals.
