The Big Wave
June 24, 2011

Cité de l'Océan et du Surf Biarritz Steven HollThe opening of the Cité de l'Océan et du Surf, a museum dedicated to the knowledge of the oceans designed by Steven Holl in collaboration with Solange Fabião, will take place tomorrow in Biarritz.
It has been 50 years since surf boards rode the waves for the first time in Europe. Since then, Biarritz has become a major European centre for this sport, and now the most famous seaside resort on the French Atlantic coast has decided to celebrate the event with a series of initiatives. The most important of these is the realization and completion of this project. It is a fully interactive museum space, designed to create a greater respect for the oceans through a better understanding.
There will also be scientific ties with surfing such as the study of hydrodynamics. Visitors can also experience the thrill of entering into large tubes that simulate the water tunnel made legendary by the filming of John Milius in his film masterpiece, Big Wednesday.
