Vancouver Aquarium Revitalization

The ambitious expansion and revitalization of Vancouver Aquarium focused on creating a higher degree of civic clarity for the Aquarium’s identity and imagery, an international destination within Stanley Park. The Masterplan consists of a new Arctic Canada Habitat exhibit, revitalized and expanded BC Coast exhibits, and the development of three free public viewing areas.  
In addition to the new and expanded exhibits, the first phase, now completed, consists of a new entrance configuration, accompanied by a public plaza, new washrooms, and bistro restaurant to enhance the public’s experience to the Aquarium. This addition has not only expanded the Aquarium but has visually and physically reconnected the different areas that had become increasingly disjointed over the years.
