An international design competition for a marine research center in Bali, Indonesia gave firm solus4  an opportunity to study and architecturally interpret the structure of tsunami waves. Designed for a site 150 meters off the shore of Kuta beach, their Marine Research Center is a fluid structure that minimizes its impact upon its natural aquatic environment. The 2500 square-meter facility is designed to be extremely energy  efficient while providing visitors and scientists with a direct connection to the the ocean.
