Walk into the tunnel from the waves... Love it.

Fascinating design here, JM. That read circle with the black strips is such an eye-magnet.

Virginia said...

Is the red circle the entrance? If so that is way cool!!!! Love the colors/comp. today JM.

I'm just so impressed that there is more and more concern for the environment showing up around the world.

Beautiful shot, JM!

I have enjoyed catching up on your posts from the last week or so, which I was not able to follow during my travels in Morocco.

By the way, the word that you were looking for in English in your comment today on the Prescott, Arizona Area Daily Photo site is "gazebo." They were popular as band stands in parks in the Victorian era in both the U.S., and perhaps other countries as well. There is a similar Victorian gazebo in the main park (the zocolo) in Oaxaca, Mexico.

I wonder what was inside that round door!

I like this green decoration:) Nice shot!

Léia and Jarat,
To be quite honest I was a bit disappointed. The display and lightning are really nice, very modern. There is a lot of multimedia, also great models of the different habitats on the council and so on, but I was expecting more...

David,
Thank you so much for the word I needed! :-) And yes, I remember the gazebo at the Zócalo in Oaxaca, very similar to ours.

It's nice, I like the plant - looks like huge bonsai:)

The tree is purposely in bad shape?..

Nice composition of shapes and colors!

I like the colors and the waves on the floor! Sorry you were disappointed.

I like the pattern of the pavement. Interesting.

I agree with Julie about that magnetic entrance. Museums and exhibitions must be great places to work for anyone with a bit of interest and talent for design and visual communication.

This is nice. My cousin who lives in Lisbon with her husband and two children recently sent me a video clip of a news story on CBS, about Portugal forging ahead with wind and wave power. I was really happy to see that but then she wrote back saying it's expensive and hard for Portugal to compete with Spain, where they have nuclear energy. And that fossil fuels are a lot cheaper.

It may be more expensive in the short-run, but it is renewable and cleaner. I'm glad that Portugal is engaging her adventurous spirit and going ahead into the future with these technologies.

Wonderful entrance as ecological exhibition.
I like that potted tree too.
Japan is small island, we want to stop global warming.

Coming from a marketing background I know the work that went into getting the design of that entrance right ... they will be pleased you appreciated it.

So you found the "black hole" ... and entered! :-)
