More NY Aquarium Renderings

Renderings of shark exhibit concept from designers, WRT.  Thanks, Rob, for the tip!





Correction to earlier post:  WRT and Cloud 9 are the design competition winning team.  I reported that Smith-Miller +Hawkinson had the winning design.  I apologize for the confusion. 


An additional rendering of the ill-fated winning design.

  1. My pleasure.

    But I believe that these rendering and the exhibit (not the architectural addition) were by The Portico Group. Keith McClintock gave a presentation on the project at AZA in 2007

  2. These renderings are indeed the work of The Portico Group. The Portico Group has been working with WCS and the New York Aquarium for several years to develop a new long range master plan and designs for the first phase which is planned to be a major new shark exhibit. The renderings you show were developed in the schematic design stages for the shark aquarium. The master plan and the shark aquarium designs were made available to all of the participants of the competition and were specified to be accommodated in the competition concepts. The winning team of WRT with Cloud 9 included the shark aquarium in their design considerations but did not use the renderings you have shown. The renderings were drawn by Keith McClintock who is a principal of The Portico Group.
