Combining fluid organic shapes of water and functional contemporary design, the Oceaneum museum is placed on the waterfront of the harbour area. The interior reflects the soft, plastic form of the exterior, creating the basic structure of the exhibition spaces. Part of the building is located in the water creating spectacular transition between the building and its surroundings. The project proposes to intensify the nature of water into a vital component in the urban landscape.
