Vancouver Aquarium

Vancouver, British Columbia | 2011–2014

PWL worked with a large multidisciplinary and specialized team on the new expansion of the Vancouver Aquarium at Stanley Park.

The new building entrance, gift shop, and outdoor arctic exhibition provides a wide variety of new amenities for the Aquarium and Park users. The expansion includes new entrance plazas with water features and gathering spaces, picnic areas, and outdoor exhibit viewing areas. The project restores the native British Columbia forest areas surrounding the aquarium and ensure better connections to feature surrounding park amenities.
