The Georgia Aquarium is an award winning and record-breaking aquarium, home to more than 100,000 animals. One of the older exhibits on the upper level, Aquanaut Adventure, was in need of a refurbishment as they were expecting some new animals to the space.
PGAV Destinations was the architect and designer for the refurbishment of the Aquanaut Adventure Exhibit. We were tasked with taking an existing space, and creating an updated experience that is story-driven and went above and beyond the expectation of the client.
Below is an excerpt from Georgia Aquarium that describes the exhibit experience:
"Our world is made of extremes: here in the all new Aquanaut Adventure: A Discovery Zone you’ll discover what it takes for animals to survive and thrive in some of the harshest environments on Earth… and what it takes to study them!...As Aquanauts-in-training, participants will explore fresh water and marine habitats, scientific research, how animals thrive in extreme environments, and even catch a glimpse into what it’s like to have a career in aquatic and marine sciences. The gallery instills a sense of appreciation for our oceans, lakes and rivers of our planet and an understanding of the organisms that thrive there."
My role was as a Graphic Designer and Concept Artist. I worked with my teammates, as well as alongside the client to create distinguished zones within the exhibit that incorporated themed paint, interacted pipework and framing, and engaging interpretive graphics.
