The Sea Building- Extension of the Lisbon Aquarium is a complex challenge. It is about intervening in a consolidated and highly dynamic public space, resolving the relationship with an existing building with a great architectural presence and with a striking image in the imaginary of the inhabitants of Lisbon , a space today qualified as an architectural heritage. The challenge was to create a building that was not simply an isolated architectural piece but that responded to urban problems and dialogued with the existing building without overlapping it.
