Whirlpool-shaped aquarium opens in Copenhagen

The stunning Blue Planet aquarium, designed by Danish studio 3XN, has opened in Copenhagen. The building comprises a series of curved wings, designed to mimic the shapes generated by swirling water, and is clad in shimmering aluminium shingles that are reminiscent of fish scales.

Containing around 7 million litres of water, the Blue Planet is the largest aquarium in Europe and contains a total of 53 aquariums and displays, housing over 450 different species of fish and creatures that can be found in rivers, lakes and oceans.
