Architecture for Fish? Underwater Homes Shelter Wildlife

September 15, 2012

Artist Jason deCaires Taylor is no stranger to the otherworldly marine environment. In fact, he has developed some of the most wonderful, heavenly scenes one can ever see underneath the surface. Now, he is transforming his attention to architecture…in a way. The homes he designed are in fact intended to be utilised as homes by a variety of marine creatures.

The Urban Reef project is based just off the shore of Cancun, Mexico. At a depth of eight meters, a small group of homes stands subtle and seemingly vacant. However, they are in reality overflowing with life. The artist built these houses to supplement the disappearing underwater coral habitats of fish and crustaceans.
