MVRDV - The Water Cube

The Water Cube

MVRDV’s design for the water pavilion at the Yeosu Expo 2012 interprets the theme by extracting a ‘block’ of water from the ocean itself: a central void, the Hall of the Oceans, is surrounded by water basins which are stacked in the shape of a cube, based on the structural capacity of the glass facades and floors. Each water basin displays a specific aspect of the ocean – the deep sea, the tropical waters, the mangroves, reefs - turning the cube into an encyclopaedic museum, the library of the oceans!
