Ocean Wonders: Shark, a new 50,000 sf building at the NY Aquarium, houses an exciting shark exhibit that conveys a sense of wonder of the ocean, an urgency regarding the ocean’s health, and connects New Yorkers to their local waters. The building form is an organic, fluid geometry resembling landforms carved by water. Integral to this theme is the spiraling ramp that unveils ocean views and leads visitors to a popular roof deck featuring open vistas.
