Ocean Dome

I am fascinated by this manmade beach on Kyushu Island, Japan. It's actually not far from the Pacific Ocean but obviously everyone prefers a crowded inside beach. This is the world’s largest indoor water park with a retractable roof. The air temperature is always kept around 30º C and the water temperature is kept at around 28º C. How 's that for improving on Nature?

Pity about the crowding, Raine, but quite a unique experience.

I love these architecture and design series, Suzanne. I'm always checking the NY Times for this kind of feature. I'll be back!
