Spain to launch its first underwater museum

SPAIN is holding its breath for the launch of its first underwater museum.

British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor – who has designed similar installations in Grenada and Mexico – aims to inspire people to ‘love the planet more’ at his proposed site in the Canary Islands.

His cement artworks, many of which are modelled on local people, are designed to attract plant life and colonies of sea creatures and evolve over time.

The Museo Atlantico, in Lanzarote – funded by the local government – will take two years and at least €700,000 to complete.

Some 2% of the museum’s revenues will go towards ecological research.
