The Aquarium of the Pacific has awarded Clark a contract for its Pacific Visions wing, a 29,000-square-foot, two-story sustainable structure.

Inside the wing, Clark will construct 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 will also provide a revitalized front plaza and increased space for installations, performances, and cultural events.

Pacific Visions will be a new focal point of the Aquarium to offer 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.
