Aquarium and Aviary Batumi

New Building in Batumi

The design is especially interesting for visitors in that it combines the Aquarium and the Aviary into one interconnected walkway of ramps and terraces. The visitor is exposed to a continuous experience of life in the oceans and rivers and an unobstructed view of the great variety of birds. The large aviary is enclosed by a metal mesh structure and it is possible to walk through this in order to inspect the birds more closely.

The design is an expression of the way the two primordial elements; water and air, brought about the chain of evolution on earth from fish to birds and finally to humans.
The combination of the two forms, the one transparent and the other solid, creates an architectural ensemble of simplicity and strength.
