Cité de l’Océan et du Surf

Located near the ocean in Biarritz, the Cité de l’Océan et du Surf is dedicated to surf, the ocean and their roles upon our leisure, science, and ecology. Designed by Steven Holl, the museum is meant to resemble the ocean, beach and the surf and features glass structures to fill the space with daylight.

Museum of Liverpool

Designed by Copenhagen-based 3XN, the new museum is a bold structure located on the Mersey River in Liverpool. Inside the Museum of Liverpool features exhibitions on the history of the port town and its influence on the world. Energy efficiency played a huge role in the building’s design, which includes the use of a ‘trigeneration’ system to create heat, electricity and cooling in one integrated process as a way of reducing carbon emissions.
