Urban Reef: Suburban homes for tropical fish
The founder and creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park which has also been described as one of the world’s most unique travel destinations, Jason Decaires Taylor who is known for art objects that are examples of marine conservation, has now created Urban Reef, which is a group of small family homes for fish. Originally modeled after suburban houses, the sculptures serve as safe havens for puffer fish, crabs, eels and more.
And, with the help from a group of marine biologists, the houses have been especially designed to accommodate a variety of marine species. Flat, leveled areas allow crabs and lobsters to sit comfortably, while the textured roof encourages coral to settle and grow, and a chimney with a tube-like inner structure is just perfect for eels. Notably, the holes in the back of the home allow fish to come and go as they please.
