Oceanographic Museum Opened

Model of the new buildings of the Ozeaneum on Stralsunds’ harbor island

The Baltic port of Stralsund is a Unesco World Heritage Site. The new Oceanographic Museum is to be built on the waterfront of the historic city center. The proposed design for the new museum is an open structure literally flooded from all sides by both people and light, similar to the way that the stones along a river’s shoreline are surrounded by water.

There are a total of 31 underwater windows of different sizes and shapes. The most stunning will be Ozeaneum’s Krypta, a 13m wide spherically curved viewport, that looks out into the schooling fish tank. The Krypta is 8.5 meter deep. The windows have reached the construction site by the time of writing and will be installed begin June 2007.

Hydrosight acquired the contract for delivering the acrylic as a sales representative for a US supplier of aquarium glazing. The overall volume of all acrylic amounted 5Mio US$.
