The Vision

LUMPSUCKER


The North Atlantic centre for sustainable marine environment

To the Faroe Islands – a fishing nation in the middle of the North Atlantic – life in the sea is a completely essential and natural part of the Faroese identity. And a sustainable coexistence with the surrounding ocean is natural to the inhabitants. Therefore, there is no more suitable spot to place a new North Atlantic oceanarium and marine research centre. Building on the extensive knowledge about the sea that exists on the islands and the experience drawn from the existing aquarium (Føroya Sjósavn) and local marine research institutions, the new North Atlantic Centre for Sustainable Marine Environment was envisioned. The municipality of capital of Tórshavn has granted the land right next to both the beautiful beach, Sandagerði, and the port of Tórshavn, providing the perfect location for the centre. And the local architects from Arkitektar99/LOFTI Arkitektar have made the architectural outline proposal shown in this folder.

The Vision

A hub for research and preservation of the local wildlife Ei lif G a a rd , D i rector of t he Inst i t ute of M a r i ne Res e a rc h

With wet laboratories, research aquariums, lighting and climate-controlled spaces, aquarium facilities with controlled water, quarantine rooms, workshops, offices, classrooms, a lecture hall, apartment for guest researcher etc. the new national oceanarium will have ideal facilities for marine research. The centre will participate in research projects in collaboration with e.g.: • •

The Marine Biology studies at the University of the Faroe Islands The Faroe Marine Research Institute (Havstovan)

• •

The Marine Life Department at the Faroe Islands National Museum The Faroese Food & Veterinary Authority

• •

The Aquaculture Research Station (Fiskaaling) International research institutions

The location of the aquarium by the shore makes it quick and easy to transport most fish species from the sea to the fish tanks. This, combined with the good quarantine conditions, which have been given high priority, makes it possible to replace fish frequently. The concept is that fish should be released back to the sea when they have reached a certain size. Such a practice where we just “borrow” fish and invertebrates for a limited period is both sustainable and ethically sound and has already been used at Føroya Sjósavn for years. Many green innovations have been developed to make the new centre and oceanarium energy efficient in a way that is truly unique in the world (see the Unique Innovation section)

New National Oceanarium and Research Centre

PORBEAGLE SHARK

The defined purpose of Føroya Sjósavn is to be a centre of knowledge and learning about the sea. It is a living exhibition of life in our marine environment, providing facilities for research and education, where teaching of children in the centre’s Nature School has been an important part. But the very limited space provided by the just 280 m2 old Ice House has been far too small for

years, and therefore plans for a new North Atlantic oceanarium and marine research centre were crafted. The new building envisioned in this folder is 2000 m2 with a total aquarium capacity of 700 tons. It is a building where sea life is exhibited in a beautiful and interesting way, but also a building that has the capacity to facilitate a wide range of activities such as teaching, cours-

es, research, receptions, exhibitions, and water activities in the surrounding area. The need for such a centre focusing on the marine environment is evident in the Faroe Islands, and the building's location and appearance will make it a landmark for the capital and the whole nation. A favourite tourist attraction but also a preferred excursion place with its proximity to the beautiful beach, Sandagerði.

National Oceanarium and Research Centre


The heart of the building will be the 600ton circular aquarium in the middle of the building, which is designed with the possibility to house porbeagle sharks as well as other North Atlantic Sea giants such as halibut and stingray. If successful, it will be the only aquarium in the world with live porbeagle sharks. The centre will be able to service various interest groups, associations and organizations related to angling, surfing, sea swimming, diving, rowing, sailing, etc. The building can support these activities with the opportunity to store equipment and offer facilities, such as shower and changing rooms. The expectation is to be able to triple the annual number of visitors from the current 10,000 to 30,000.

Føroya Sjósavn has collaborated with the municipality of Tórshavn on the project, and all permits have been obtained.

The History


The History

The dream of an oceanarium in the Faroe Islands is both old and persistent, and there have been many discussions and suggestions about how it should be realized. But a project often starts with a passionate soul and this is also the case for Føroya Sjósavn (the National Oceanarium). Bjørki Geyti, who has a background as a surveyor, biologist assistant and commercial diver, has worked with the sea for many years, among other things for the Natural History Museum and the Marine Biological Station of the Faroe Islands. One of the tasks was to construct some aquariums that researchers and students could use in their work. Soon, schools and kindergartens began to visit. It was clear that there was a great deal of interest and need for a public visiting aquarium. A dream was created.

A steering committee with several enthusiasts was formed and an application for financial support for the design of a public aquarium in the old “ice house” (cold store) on Argir was sent to Tórshavn municipality (capital of the Faroe Islands) in 2004. The application was welcomed by the municipality, which immediately offered a 30-year lease of the old ice house for a symbolic amount as well as financing of the refurbishment of the interior. The project was realized with the help of volunteers under the technical leadership of David Geyti and in Easter 2007, Føroya Sjósavn opened to the public. Føroya Sjósavn is today organized as a self-governing institution (foundation) with a board. The institution is financially supported by both the municipality of Tórshavn and the Faroese Government. A maritime aquarium is of great importance to the education of children and adults about our basic living conditions and surrounding environment, and despite its modest conditions, Føroya Sjósavn

has been a great success with about 10,000 visitors a year, of which approx. 2,000 are from schools and kindergartens that have been able to study marine life up close and be taught about the diversity of the sea.

The Old Ice House (Cold Store)

The oceanarium’s current premises consist of 3 units: partly the old ‘Ice House’, which is built of boulders, partly an extension in reinforced concrete, in addition to an extension in wood. The buildings have for many years functioned as workshops for the municipality, and they are all used by the aquarium today; The ice house and the concrete building as exhibition rooms, and the wooden building as a technical room. Only the old boulder building may possibly have conservation value. This ice house was used about a century ago to collect ice to supply the fishing boats.

The Ice House around 1970

Outside are historical relics from a dam that was built to collect ice in the winter. The ice house has a history that is worth preserving, both as part of the Faroese fishing history, but also as part of the aquarium’s history. The idea is to clean the house down to the original wall and let it be part of the new aquarium. This part is intended to be used for lectures and various exhibitions.

Unique Innovation

RED PELLUCIDA SEA SLUG


Unique Innovation

In several areas, the New National Oceanarium will rethink the entire way aquariums are built.

Inspired by aquaculture / fish farming on land, where you use round fish tanks, the main aquarium will be round with integrated filtration in the middle of the aquarium. This type of filtration eliminates the need for external filtration with pipes to and from the aquarium. Thus, water is moved as short as possible, which is a huge advantage in terms of energy, as you can manage with low-energy pumps that significantly reduce the total energy consumption. You can also easily change the current, so you avoid “dead

spots” in the tub. This mimics the water agitation in nature with changing ocean currents. The round tank also gives the fish the illusion that they are swimming in an infinitely large area. This should provide better animal welfare. But also, for the visitors, the aquarium will provide a different experience than they have tried elsewhere. Fresh seawater is pumped into the tanks, and energy from the seawater is via a heat pump used to heat the building. The low energy cost means that you can afford to have a full replacement of all the water

in the tanks every day, which makes biofilters and the like superfluous and always ensures completely fresh seawater in the aquariums. The estimated total energy consumption is 1/3 of the consumption in similar aquariums elsewhere.

Round fish tanks improve filtration and lower energy consumption

19


Unique Innovation

The use of daylight is also a special aspect. There is no roof over the large 600-ton tank. This way you use daylight to illuminate the tank and get a natural, changing light with sun rays penetrating the water and creating shimmering water. This is also energy efficient. The aquarium will thus be completely open to the elements, so that rain and wind - even birds - have free access to influence biology, create small waves, etc. There are also plans to ex-

periment with having diving seabirds such as cormorants or eiders in the large tank. This way, the aquarium will be lit by natural light for the most part. However, LED lights will illuminate it in the evening and in winter, which will also highlight the building

Aquarium open to the elements


Unique Innovation

as an attraction and landmark for the city close to the entrance to the capital by sea.

All of the above are elements that will make this oceanarium completely unique in the world.

The smaller aquariums are mobile. Air cushions are fitted underneath with compressed air, which makes it possible to move them around to create variation in the exhibition. This is probably a complete novelty in aquarium worldwide. At the same time, this mobility also makes it easy to clear the floor in connection with events.

A pilot project with a temporary outdoor aquarium is currently being built, where we will gain experience in how to make porbeagle shark thrive. A full-size prototype (600 tons) built with 10 x 20-foot containers will provide important experiences before embarking on the new National Oceanarium. This prototype is built solely with the support of many local companies that supply materials and manpower for the project. Again, a testament to the great support the project enjoys locally.

Research and Collaboration


Research and Collaboration

With the new improved facilities, the opportunities both in education and research would be greatly improved Svein-Ole M ikal se n , Dr. p hil os . , P rofe ss or i n m o l e cu l a r bi o l o gy, University of the Faroe I sl an ds

The new national oceanarium will have ideal facilities for marine research. The center will provide optimal opportunities to study marine life close by under controlled conditions, keeping animals alive in aquariums. This makes it easy to produce scientific material. With its proximity to the sea, most fish species and invertebrates can easily be transported from the sea to holding tanks, minimizing any stress to the animals.

The facilities include wet laboratories, research aquariums, lighting and climate-controlled spaces, aquarium facilities with controlled water, quarantine rooms, workshops, offices, classrooms, a lecture hall, apartment for guest researcher etc. The good quarantine facilities make it possible to facilitate the sustainable and ethical concept of regularly returning animals to the sea and having them in aquariums only for a limited time.

The School Service & Nature School One of the main purposes of Føroya Sjósavn is to teach school children, kindergartens and other groups about topics that are directly related to the exhibitions. Since 2006, school classes and kindergartens have visited Føroya Sjósavn in large numbers. The school service is open all year.

In the new aquarium, of course, great emphasis is placed on that these groups get as good circumstances as possible. There is a teaching room on the lower floor, where children and other groups can dissect fish and look at them through a microscope. On the top floor, a classroom is planned with equipment for research and teaching.

The Birds

PUFFIN


The Birds

Føroya Sjósavn owns a large and valuable collection of stuffed birds that currently cannot be exhibited due to lack of space and proper conditions.

The existing collection .

The bird collection is based on an anonymous donation of more than 400 different birds. The collection is a mix of common Faroese birds and rare birds.

Some of the birds will be exhibited and used for teaching, while others must be protected in a climate controlled cabinet.

In the new National Oceanarium, the collection can become a significant part of the exhibition and used for teaching about nature and the sea.

An Integrated Part of the Society Føroya Sjósavn’s diverse collection of fish and sea animals is very much built on the good cooperation with local fishermen, divers, and others who work at sea. Many fishermen faithfully help Føroya Sjósavn obtain interesting fish and animals from the sea, and divers also frequently come by with sea animals that they find on their trips.

Disposition of Area


Disposition of Area

To the east of the current building, there is a rocky ledge and flat rocky beach, in addition to a boat ramp, which is no longer used. There is also a flat rocky beach below the car park and across towards the sand beach, Sandagerði. By creating a connection between Føroya Sjósavn and the beach, it will become an attractive place where leisure activities in connection with the sea can exist and be developed. This includes diving, snorkeling, fishing, surfing, sea swimming, sea kayaking, sailing etc.

31


Disposition of Area

Føroya Sjósavn can provide these activities with the opportunity to store equipment, in addition to offering facilities, such as showers and changing rooms.

Sandagerði Bay is the ideal location for the oceanarium

During the summer, it will be possible for tourists to visit Føroya Sjósavn – also accessing the jetty directly with smaller boats e.g. from the big cruise ships. Sandagerði, which consists of sandy beach, rock surfaces and rocks, is suitable for conducting


Disposition of Area

area surveys and collections. More than 50 different plants have been registered along the river, and there are at least 10 kinds of seaweed in the bay right outside. It is possible to fish several kinds of fish with nets, fish traps, and fishing nets. On the headland below the hospital there are many child-friendly ponds. Sandagerði is a natural gem in the middle of Tórshavn. The small sandy beach is a favorite excursion spot for the locals and is widely used for walks, water activities, fishing, etc.

However, the river cuts off the connection from Sandagerði to the oceanarium. To integrate the two, it is planned to build a pedestrian bridge over the small waterfall that would merge the two areas into a coherent unit. The new Føroya Sjósavn will with its alluring architecture and large, lighted windows attract people on evening walks, and during the day, the whole area will function as a leisure area with many activity opportunities.

The Building Concept

The design and shape of the building is based on the infinity of the sea and the unhindered movement patterns of the animals and therefore is based on ovals and circular shapes. Just as the ocean is infinite, the shape of the circle and the ellipse are infinite.

The absence of edges and straight shapes, which create corners and transitions, provides optimal conditions for the animals’ free movement while providing the right conditions to create currents that mimic ocean currents. The building adapts to the landscape and scale of the site and uses the already existing imprint created in the landscape in the form of the current car park, so that the surrounding original landscape is allowed to remain untouched.

The sloping climate screen follows the waves and slopes of the surrounding landscape and acts as a protection against rain and wind when moving around the building outside and as a filter of the sun’s light and heat for the interior spaces and aquariums. In continuation of the preserved ice house is a workshop building on one floor, which, like the ice house, is made of a heavy material, and lies as a continuation of the underlying rock foundation, over which the slightly oval shape settles.

The low building blends into the landscape


The Building Concept

The materials in the form of stone, concrete, corten steel, and grass on the roof are raw, natural and play well with the materials and colors of nature and with the light play of the sun’s rays hitting the water in the aquariums. The main attraction is a large aquarium, designed for porbeagle shark and other sea giants, such as rays and halibuts. The aquarium will be circular in a diameter of 20 meters and is open on top (no roof) to take advantage of the sun’s rays and avoid air conditioning.

If you are lucky, you may see a bird perch on the water surface or dive for a fish. In addition to the large exhibition space, the ground level contains an entrance, ticket sales, shop, and a café. But also, a garage, warehouse, workshop, technical room, research, and teaching room etc. It will also contain several smaller built-in aquariums and medium-sized aquariums that are moveable, so there is the possibility of a flexible exhibition.

In the lower level there are technical rooms and facilities for divers, etc. with access directly from the sea and the jetty. In the upper level are the office, staff rooms and classrooms, as well as accommodation for guest researchers. To the southeast, behind the building, there is an area that can be used for outdoors activities.

Construction Principle

CURLED OCTOPUS


Construction Principle Load-Bearing Structures The building is dimensioned in accordance with the local BK-17 building regulations, applicable EuroCodes together with associated Danish annexes taking into account special Faroese conditions, such as wind conditions along with extensive rain. In particular, requirements for deflections in the constructions, which are emphasised in EuroCodes and the Danish annexes. The wind load is determined in according to BK-17. The load-bearing structures are generally made of concrete and concrete steel. Foundations, individual walls, and decks between the floors are cast in-situ or made as concrete elements. This is an advantage in terms of construction time and cost.

The stability of the building is ensured by concrete walls where possible and otherwise with wind crossings to the extent necessary on selected places.

The sloping columns on the outside are part of the architectural expression and will therefore not be a load-bearing structure.

Earthworks The foundations are cast on a compacted fill. The terrain deck is cast on site on top of insulation, which is laid out on a layer of capillary-breaking shards.

The earthworks include excavation, blasting of rock and backfill for the building and traffic areas. The filling is compacted well and thoroughly to minimize the risk of differential settling in the building.

The main aquarium for larger fish and other marine animals is made as an in-situ cast concrete wall. This construction is used to support the roof but not to stabilize the building.

Exterior walls and roof will be steel structures, where columns in the exterior walls along with walls and columns inside the building carry the roof. Pillars inside the building are, when possible, placed in places where they are to the least inconvenience to the interior design and practical use of the building. Loaded trapezoidal sheets are laid between the steel beams in the roof as a base for insulation and the roof structure otherwise.

Ventilation Principle

It is considered advantageous to divide the ventilation into three different zones. The picture above shows the indicative location of ventilation units and ventilation luminaires, as well as the division of the zones to be ventilated by the ventilation units. Supply air is marked in yellow and extraction in red. By dividing the canteen and classroom into a zone (blue) and aquarium in another zone (orange), it is possible to maintain the same ventilation if you choose to put a glass wall in between zone 1 and zone 2. The third zone (green) containing toilet, office, accommodation, meeting room etc. is being ventilated by a smaller ventilation unit. The ventilation units for zone 2 and zone 3 are placed close to the entrance, while the ventilation unit to zone 1 is placed by the canteen.

SEA ANEMONE

The ventilation in zone 2 is expected to be running around the clock, while the ventilation in zone 1 and zone 3 is running for certain periods of the day.

Based on CO2 ventilation, the air demand is 31 m3/h per person. Table 1 shows an assessment of the maximum amount of people that can be in the different zones, as well as the air demand. • Ventilation will not be adjusted according to sunlight. Special sun-screened windows are estimated to be needed. • The amount of ventilation in each room is controlled via room sensors and motor valve.

• Channels for air intake and return are in the dimensions 700x350mm for the ventilation units with 5000 m3/h and 500x250mm for the ventilation units with 2000 m3/h. • The ventilation units and ducts must be sound-absorbing corresponding to requirements for noise from ventilation units, as prescribed in the the ventilation standard, the Working Environment Authority and BK 17. • The ventilation system is dimensioned according to DS for ventilation systems (DS447) and DS for fire technical specification for ventilation systems (DS428).

Electrical Principle

JELLYFISH


TERRAIN Outdoor lighting is expected in the terrain and on the building. The outdoor lighting is controlled by an “astro clock”. CABLE ROUTES Common main routes for electricity, IT and machine installations will be carried out to all areas. Out in the areas, pipe ducts and pipes are expected where it is most appropriate. In offices and meeting rooms, installation ducts and floor boxes are expected. In aquarium areas, it is expected that electricity for fish tanks and other technical installations will be established under technical floors. All lead-ins for electricity will be fire and soundproof. Where necessary, they will be waterproof.

LOW VOLTAGE The electrical installation is carried out as a three-phase TT system. With the possibility of 30% expansion. An emergency power plant is expected for the aquarium treatment plant.

COMMUNICATION AND INFORMATION Speaker systems are expected in showrooms, café areas, toilets and shops. Crossroads, server etc. are placed in technical rooms and main sockets are expected at all workstations and at printers etc.

The main switchboard is placed in a technical room with two different billing meters, one for ordinary electricity and one for green energy.

Access points are established so that the entire building can be covered by a wireless network (WiFi).

Sub-boards are placed on the ground floor and on the 1st floor.

Video systems are expected in selected rooms.

The lighting installation is established as a “Dali installation” with the option of controlling and changing the lighting according to the function of the room, and emergency lighting is established.

FUSE Full-coverage ABA systems as well as AVA and ABDL systems are expected. ADK is also expected for exterior doors and for doors where there will be no public access.

AUTOMATIC BUILDING A BMS / CTS system is expected for monitoring and partial control of ventilation, heating, and room control. PROTECTION Main equalization connections are established which cover the entire building as well as supplementary equalization where necessary. PASSENGER AND MATERIAL TRANSPORT Electricity and communication to the elevator are expected.

Placed in the center of the North Atlantic Ocean, the new North Atlantic Center for Sustainable Marine Environment will be a hub for studying marine life. Technical innovations will make the oceanarium unique in the world, providing optimal conditions for animal welfare and insure very low energy consumption. In several areas the new oceanarium will rethink how aquariums are constructed. It will have an open roof, use round fish tanks, place filters in the middle of the tank, and use air cushions under the smaller tanks to make them mobile. Sea energy, solar energy, efficient pump systems, integrated filtration and the use of round tanks makes it possible to reduce energy consumption to 1/3 of similar aquariums elsewhere.
