Part of a significant revitalization and upgrade to this world famous Aquarium, two water features contribute to an inspiring entrance and exterior space.
A 100 foot waterwall on the west side of the building displays cascadingwater flowing over fish-shaped glass blocks, imitating a river. Flanked by cafe seating and a busy walkway into Stanley Park, this waterwall is a tribute to the importance of water. At night the waterwall glows with LED lighting.
At the entrance of the building Bill Reid’s iconic statue, Chief of the Undersea World, hovers gracefully over a glass-like reflective pool. A gift to the Aquarium over 30 years ago, the statue was carefully relocated to this high profile location and mounted within the custom built pool that overflows into a thin sheet waterfall.
