Underwater Homes: Suburban Habitats for Schools of Fish


The project recalls those little like those ceramic houses built for fish tanks … but on a stunningly larger scale.

But don’t let the look and feel fool you: these submerged structures were specifically designed by Jason deCaires Taylor┬áto house a variety of species in need of places to live (and avoid predators in the process)- public housing for the fishes if you will.
