Design Concept Marine Research Centre in Bali, Indonesia

The Marine Research Centre Bali Indonesia uses renewable sources of energy like solar panels for its electricity generation and collected rainwater for water consumption by the scientists who live in the centre for the purpose of research and exploration. It has been designed to make things feasible not just for the people who are based with the research centre but also for the plants and animals who might find the construction of the structure a bit hindering to their growth, movement and survival
Maine-based architecture firm Solus4 recently submitted this proposal for a Marine Research Centre in Bali Indonesia. The international competition was an opportunity to study the structure of tsunami waves, and sought to address the need for tsunami research and preparation in response to the devastation caused by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami

And considering the objective and scope of the nature of the research study undertaken, it is quite apparent that the Marine Research Centre Bali Indonesia has got a lot of potential in the international arena for being a revolutionary structure not just in terms of its architectural beauty but also in terms of the research and expertise provided

The main purpose behind the conception and the construction of the Marine Research Centre Bali Indonesia is to study the tsunami causing waves in depth, delve into their approach through the water and thus chart out ways and means to prevent a tsunami from causing major damage to the lives of the individuals residing in the coastal areas
With the core purpose quite clear and the simplicity of the construction helping the research centre to come closer and closer to achieve its purpose, the Marine Research Centre Bali Indonesia has become a great hit not only among the people in the country but also among people across the world. In its own way, the Marine Research Centre Bali Indonesia has become an icon structure helping to study and at the same time add a bit of dynamism to the field of architecture

Solus4’s 27,000 sq ft (2,500 sq m) structure includes research labs, bedrooms for scientists, a seawater pool, aquatic garden library, and an auditorium. Tidal generators will be used along with photovoltaics to generate electricity, while solar passive and energy efficient design will minimize energy usage. Rainwater will be collected and seawater conversion systems will provide potable water for the facility
