As technology has advanced so has man's use of the ocean. In order to preserve the history of these advancements for future generations, museums have been erected. The Carolina Coastal Museum is dedicated to the nautical history of the Carolinas. The project is fueled by the theories and philosophies of zoomorphism and anthropomorphism. The building is based upon the skeletal structure of a fish, the main element being the spine. Other natural elements such as ligaments, cartilage, respiratory system, and circulatory system were also explored and utilized within the project.
