Clark constructed the new 29,000-square-foot, two-story Pacific Visions wing at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Inside the wing, Clark constructed the spaces that will house the Aquarium’s state-of-the-art immersive theater, expanded special exhibition and art galleries, and additional space for live animal exhibits. The Pacific Visions wing also provides a revitalized front plaza and increased space for installations, performances, and cultural events.

This new wing will be the focal point of the aquarium, providing facilities that will integrate the arts and sciences while offering visitors innovative ways to understand our connections to Earth, the World Ocean, and contemporary scientific research.

The project is slated to open in spring 2019. 

EHDD is the project architect.
