The Atlantic Museum
About the Atlantic Museum
The creation of the monumental Atlantic Museum project by artist Jason deCaires Taylor
aspires to create a strong visual dialogue between art and nature.
Designed with a conservationist approach to generate an artificial reef on a large scale, since its first installations in 2016, it has already achieved a considerable increase in the rates of species generation and abundance, being currently frequented by angel sharks, barracuda banks, sardines, octopuses, sea sponges, and the occasional butterfly ray.
The museum, which occupies an area of 50 x 50 meters of sandy seabed devoid of life is built with environmentally friendly neutral pH materials, and all the pieces have been designed to adapt to endemic marine life.
The museum begins its journey in an entrance, and ends in an exit.
It is formed by ten facilities that aspire to reflect the contemporaneity, making us question the use of natural resources.
