Delightful Orca-Inspired Architecture
This L’Escaut Architecture Skating Rink is Whale-Shape

By: Michael Hemsworth (Superstar) Jan 10, 13

For a whale of a good time, the L’Escaut Architecture skating rink is delightfully designed after the classic shape of an orca. The adorable, enclosed rink is complete after a lengthy seven year building process that began with hopes to create an expansive structure that will comfortably serve as the municipal rink for the town of Liége in Belgium.

The architects behind the eccentric structure state that they followed a design aesthetic that would product a building that is, ”round, fluid with generous shape, as a metaphor of a universe of ice.” Their mission is indeed accomplished as the rink begins to open it’s doors for lucky patrons who will be able to say they’re skated inside a whale.
