ISTANBUL: Istanbul Aquarium
Istanbul building Europe's biggest aquarium!
Istanbul Aquarium represents a first in our country. This project provides vital additional value to the touristic and cultural tissue of mega city Istanbul.
The site is 5 km away from Ataturk International Airport, near the motorway and railway transportation systems in Florya, which is at the southwest coast of Istanbul where 11 million people live in. Besides, IDO sea busses have been considered for visitors, who want to reach aquarium by seaway.
One of the most important criteria is that, aquarium building is designed as 5 facades since it is located under the landing corridor. The main concept of the site plan design of aquarium project has been considered as "fish skeleton" as seen above.

Wow, this aquarium is huge!
Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

WOW! I didn't know that they've already started the construction! It looks amazing and indeed huge and it is also something we really need in our city. Another thing is a big theme park for entertainment. Another one was a major sports event and we have F1 Grandprix now.
With these two finished... Nothing can stop Istanbul... Istanbul is on the right track...
