TRSDC reveal design for sustainable marine life centre on the Red Sea
30 Sep 2022

The Red Sea Development Company (TRSDC), the developer behind the AMAALA tourism project on the shores of the Red Sea, has revealed detailed plans for a marine life institute.Designed by Foster and Partners, the institute will function as both a scientific research centre and a tourist destination, with 10 zones providing a range of experiences, from augmented reality to submarine dives.

The 10,340sqm institute will be built three levels – one above ground and two below – and offer panoramic views of the Red Sea and marina. Inspired by the Red Sea's coral formations, the glass-reinforced concrete being used to build the institute will be intricately moulded to resemble reef patterns.Inside, exhibition displays have also been integrated into the infrastructure, with visitors flanked by suspended semi-spherical tanks containing colourful local marine life.Expected to host up to 650 people at any one time, guests will be able to walk underwater, snorkel with rare species, participate in lab tours and dive into the depths of the Red Sea in a submarine.
