The Vancouver Aquarium built in1958 was renovated and expanded. The expansion was designed to evoke the flow of water and the wonder of aquatic life. The new two-story aquarium building features a curvilinear architectural design that is clad in sophisticated colour-changing aluminium composite material mimicking fish scales in hues ranging from green to pink. The building provides a signature-element entrance, ticketing/admissions area, café/coffee bar, gift shop, children's area and courtyard. The building houses a new upper-level connecting hub and gallery featuring a 360-degree overhead digital projection of the aquatic world and a 14-foot globe. The building?s lower level features a public program presentation area with amphitheatre-style seating and a changing exhibits gallery.
