Aquarium Features

Aquariums that provide “layers of information” are those that are guaranteed return visits. Special Exhibitory and Story Telling is paramount.

For example; Imagine a Shark Tank designed as the Ballroom on the Titanic.

A 3/D Model (by others) based on above Concept Design


I have designed a number of aquariums and helped to design and install the Special Exhibitory for Shanghai’s Ocean Aquarium. Aquariums can be executed as a museum symposium of creatures or a money-making leisure destination that guarantees return visits. I prefer the latter.


Any aquarium must (in my opinion) advertise its insides by designing its outsides.
