About this Event

The World of Nature Aquarium

May 18th (MON), 2020

Private Event in Kew Gardens

Learn From Nature, Create Nature

 It has been 35 years since the conception of Nature Aquarium, the method of reproducing the beauty of a natural, living ecosystem inside an aquarium, an endeavor which has captured the enthusiasm of people all over the world. Beyond showcasing aquatic ecosystems, Nature Aquarium has been gathering attention in various fields as an art that expresses the unique Japanese aesthetic Wabi Sabi and as a medium for environmental messages. At this event, there will be a lecture to look at the origin and future of Nature Aquarium and a demonstration showing how you can create your own Nature Aquarium.
