Haruka Misawa is the head of the Misawa Design Institute and the creative mind behind a series of 3D-printed aquariums that offer a modern form of engineering to mass-produce the aquatic homes and the necessities inside. The Japanese artist utilizes the quick producing technology to build aqua-architecture designed with landscapes specific to the aquatic life inside. The entire space is rendered using digital software and a 3D-printer to bring the design to life.

The tanks are constructed using a 3D-printed lattice that replicates the aesthetic of plants, sand and rock to create a liveable and sustainable environment for fish, turtles and other sea creates. The aquariums are developed on computers allowing the designer to improve the standard tank's design. For example, the 3D-engineering renders the tank's overall structure much more durable to the effects of gravity and water.
