The Wadden Sea Center is a new building slated to be constructed at Wadden Sea National Park, the largest national park in Denmark and a UNESCO world heritage site. Because of the natural beauty of Wadden Sea National Park, Dorte Mandrup, the Dutch architecture firm behind the design, worked to make the Wadden Sea Center a virtually invisible structure that allows the park itself to be the highlight.

To be sure, the Wadden Sea Center is still an appealing place to visit for those hiking through the park. It contains a small museum and information hub in which visitors can learn about the surrounding landscape. For instance, it contains a display informs people about the 15 million migrating birds that rest in the area throughout the year.
