The developer has revealed design plans for its state-of-the-art Marine Life Institute. Created by world-class architectural design firm Foster + Partners, the institute will function as both a scientific research centre and a tourist destination. It will accelerate conservation-driven research, while offering visitors truly multidimensional experiences that bridge educational exhibitions with adventure-filled excursions. The institute will live in the Triple Bay marina at Amaala, but is the beating heart of our broader ambitions to protect and enhance the thriving Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia. 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 the depths of the Red Sea in a submarine. A testament to TRSDC's coral farming operations, the facility will also be home to one of the world’s largest man-made reefs, measuring an astonishing 40 m long and 10 m deep and providing an epic “Grand Reveal” moment for visitors on arrival. Set within the Amaala destination on the west coast of Saudi Arabia and located on the waterfront of Triple Bay, the 10,340 sq m institute will comprise three levels – one above ground and two below – and offer stunning panoramic views of the Red Sea and the marina. Inspired by the Red Sea's thriving coral formations, the glass-reinforced concrete that is being used to build the institute will be intricately molded to resemble reef patterns against the skyline. Inside, exhibition displays have also been integrated into the infrastructure, with visitors flanked by suspended semi-spherical tanks containing colorful local marine wildlife from the point of entry. More than 40% of the site will be covered by native plants, and a system to collect runoff water put in place to prevent erosion and pollution, while reducing mains water use. The lighting throughout the institute has also been designed with the company’s green ambitions in mind, with an innovative framework to prevent light pollution to protect the nocturnal environment. Site preparation works have already commenced with bulk earthworks now complete and 170,000 cu m of soil transported. Next TRSDC will commence piling and shoring ahead of excavating 12 m below the surface water level for the institute’s Grand Reveal aquarium. The Marine Life Institute is part of phase one of Amaala Triple Bay, which is set to welcome its first guests in 2024.
