Ozeaneum: the sea in Germany

I cannot avoid to restart my blog with one of Behnisch's projects!
The Ozeaneum in Stralsund (Northern Germany) has opened on July 11.
Celebrations have been great in the office for the largest European marine museum.

"The new Marine Museum in Stralsund is an open structure flooded from all sides by people and light, similar to the way stones in the sea near the water‘s edge are flooded by the surrounding water.
From every approach the changing alignment of the different parts of the building create a dynamism and varied form of the museum".
