Oceanário

My passion for aquatic life makes me go quite often to Lisbon Aquarium. Built by american architect Peter Chermayeff, 'Oceanário' opened its doors ten years ago for EXPO 98.

This is a great architecture, and architectural photos! I love the geometry and the fact that it's located off shore. Wonderful!

It seems that I've missed quite some interesting posts since my last visit here. I especially like that downtown pictures of colorful buildings!

That's an interesting looking structure and it's use. With the backdrop of a marevellous blue sky it real stands out.

Alaya, I'm not sure but it must be around 40 meters...

Thank you all for your comments!

Wow. Love the way you took the shot. Simply fantastic. I don't know why but it got me. Your photo. Is it ok if I save it on my computer? I won't cry if its not ok. =)
