dc.description.abstractMan currently takes no ownership for the oceans despite being a major contributor to its current state. People are happy utilising it for their own needs but lack conviction in order to take ownership. An architectural intervention could help to begin this change in perspective. A building that was based upon public education and research has the potential to reintroduce man to the ocean wilderness in a positive way. This research is an in-depth exploration of how architecture can contribute to this massive ecological and environmental problem. This process aims to exhibit the current problem, explore existing precedents, and apply newer technologies. This thesis aims to design an architectural building that creates public responsibility for the world’s oceans. Obviously this is only a small part of greater solution to protect the marine environment.
