  1. Absolutely beautiful and amazing. I really like that we have realized building can be works of art and not just shelter and places to store things. I have always been a really big fan of aquariums and it’s a shame that most here in the states have become theme parks or closed down, they used to be in abundance here. I will definitely have to put this one on my to do list.
