Audubon Aquarium of the Americas Elevates the Level of Their Exhibits Through Environmental Design
Audubon Aquarium of the Americas was installing a new, 13,000 gallon shark touchpool. This touchpool was to become a focal point that would break down negative stereotypes of sharks while encouraging understanding and conservation. With a major gathering of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) rapidly approaching, a gala of more than 3,000 top leaders and conservationists, the designed needed to match the grand scale of the touchpool.
Working around the clock on a tight timeline, we created eye-catching graphics, interpretives, and interactives that transport visitors to an underwater world teeming with wildlife. On time and on budget, this project is an example of interactive environment and exhibit design that inspires empathy and raises awareness surrounding the goals & mission of the Audubon Aquarium.
THE NEED: To outfit the new Shark Discovery touchpool exhibit with visual and interactive displays. THE GOAL: To attract, engage, and educate visitors via interaction and visual design.
