COPENHAGEN BLUE PLANET
The form of the aquarium is inspired on the shape of a whirl, that is maybe a little
bit too slavish. It is covered with rhomboidally arranged aluminium pannels, that
reflects water and sunlight similarly to fish skin, and is also covered with titanum
dioxide that makes the surface self-cleaning like a lotus leaf bahave. That is what I
actually really like about this project.
For me the most inspiring example of a pattern brought from the nature are fractal
trees. It is a self-organizing system that could capture the light and
space in shaping the tree. The control of branch density is integrated globally
through internal signaling of the amount of light recheived to decide where the
branch should be kept, or whether should be shed.
