This is a concept proposed by Solus4 in An International Design Competition was held recently for idealizing a marine research center in Bali, Indonesia. Solus4 proposed a concept to address the need for tsunami research and preparation in response to the devastation caused by the 2004 Indian ocean earthquake and tsunami.
According to the Solus4:
A 2,500 SM Marine Research Center Located 100 meters away, parallel to the shore of Kuta Beach, Bali, Indonesia. The program is composed of three main components: public, semipublic and private. The spaces vary from underwater labs, scientist bedrooms and aquatic garden to sea water pool, swimming pool terrace, bar and an auditorium. The spaces are located above and under water and allow the visitors and scientist to take full advantage of the amazing landscape that surrounds the project.
This project represents a new typology for stationary in-water based projects reached by boat, which in the past have been mostly relegated as merely work, non-destination platforms which do not take into account the design possibilities that the in-water sites present.
