Coralarium: World's First Semi-Submerged Art Gallery

 sculpture coralarium maldives


 The Sculpture Coroalarium is an art gallery at the Fairmont Hotel, Sirru Fen Fushi, Maldives where land, sea, and art collide.  The artwork was developed by Jason deCaires Taylor and is a semi-submerged tidal gallery space that exhibits a series of sculptural artworks on the skyline, inter-tidal waterline and seabed. The structure is made so that marine life can pass through easily and also that over time it can become a coral habitat. The design itself is based on natural coral structures, as the walls are porous. The cube-shaped art gallery is 3 metres tall and is made completely from materials that aren't harmful to the environment.  Jason deCaires Taylor truly has built something amazing with the world's first semi-submerged tidal gallery space.  Check out an in-depth look (no pun intended) at the impressive structure below!
