This is the facade of Oceanário de Lisboa. It is located in the Parque das Nações, which was the exhibition grounds for the Expo '98. It's the largest indoor Aquarium in Europe.
The Lisbon Oceanarium’s conceptual design, architecture, and exhibit design was led by Peter Chermayeff of Peter Chermayeff LLC while at Cambridge Seven Associates. It is said to resemble an Aircraft carrier, and is built into the pier on an internal sea. Chermayeff is also the designer of the Osaka Oceanarium, the world's largest aquarium, and many other Aquariums around the world.

although I visited this place few years ago,I didn´t noticed the uniqueness of its facade.
Great capture of it.I enjoy the view and the way you composed the picture.A little bit tilted perspective to create eye-catching visual effect.The facade looks like it would be made of fish scales.I´m sure many people will enjoy this picture here on TE.Well done!

Oooh la la! Fantastic perspective and graphism. The tight frame works superbly and you have captured so many wonderful textures. A truly artistic shot, so simple, yet so skillfully executed.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. La contre plongée est vertigineuse et on sent bien la texture du mur. Le ciel bleu est un arrière plan parfait.

Great perspective and lines - very geometric composition. It reminds me of the shots i uploaded of the Selfrdiges building when I first started on TE.
Great shot. TFS

Nice point of view, evidencing the shape and pattern of the wall and also giving dynamism with all the diagonale lines.

Super shot Daniel and I am impressed by the 'fish scales', are they ceramic? Simple composition with the wonderful effect of diminishing perspective which draws the eye up to the top of the building. Nicely done. Warm regards Rosemary

Compo très réussie.Une perspective très graphique avec des couleurs extra.

I remember this wall well and you made the best of its graphic and rhythmic potential. Angle and exposure are spot on. A very fine archi-graphism this is.
Best regards from Rotterdam,

una foto di grande impatto grafico.
Bellissimo il contrasto cromatico tra la struttura ed il cielo.

splendido esercizio grafico in una immagine dalla buona forza compositiva.
Cielo azzurro che spezza la sequenza delle tante squame bianche,
brianmcc (6099) 2012-10-01 14:48
this is a very imaginative composition. the clarity is superb and the colours are bright and vibrant. the blue in the top corner is fantastic and a great contrast to the brilliant whites.

nice view of the "fish skin" of the aquarium!
SWEETFREEDOM (22292) 2012-10-02 9:42
great p.o.v. and graphic effect, fine light and colors.
elkab (4951) 2012-10-02 9:49
Great idea and result. Very, very interesting abstract composition and textures.
marabu61 (8063) 2012-10-02 12:22
I first didn't see the fish scale, but this being a Aquarium it makes quite sense.
Great and unusual POV and angle. The eye follows the diminishing scales beautifully up to infinity. Great work,
have a good time
abmdsudi (42012) 2012-10-03 7:18
The amount of scales arranged together in a similar form and patterns have transformed this to something artistic and pleasing to eye particularly seen from this viewpoint. Wonderful detail and sharp focus, it is a precious look indeed but the strong lighting outlining the profile is most attractive element. Fabulous contrast, Great shot.
