This Guy Built An Entire Home Underwater For One Incredible And Beneficial Reason

The ‘urban reef’ created by Jason Decaires Taylor is somewhat of a fish neighborhood made up of sculptures under the sea for marine life to take refuge when a predator is on the hunt.  In what resembles a typical urban American neighborhood, the marine life under the sea have multiple dwellings for them to escape whatever predators are lurking deep beneath the Cancun sea.
