Cité de l'Océan et du Surf by Solange Fabião

Steven Holl Architects have designed the Museum of Ocean and Surf - or Cité de l'Océan et du Surf - in Biarritz, France. The project, a collaboration with Solange Fabião, is based on the concept "under the sky/under the sea". The architects have created a concave shape open to sky and sea that contains the museum's central plaza. The exhibition spaces are given an "under the sea" feeling by using convex structural ceilings.
