The larger part of exhibition space of the Basel Aquarium, is planned underground. This is the main reason that Boltshauser Architekten won the competition, beating out names such as Zaha Hadid.

“Seacliff” will include an underwater tunnel and the different aquariums will have a variety of sharks, rays, giant squid penguins and more.
