Best Project of Public Building or Facility
About the project
This tourist center (Iceland) is located ashore the Atlantic Ocean. The project is dedicated to the vitally important matter of whale extermination.
The pavilion depicts a floating whale. The floating effect is ensured by the specially designed carbon fiber roofing resting on glass pylons.
The facility doesn’t just show scenic landscapes to the tourists but also makes them think about environmental friendliness.
