EHDD orchestrated a three-month programming and concept design resulting in a vision that refreshes, revitalizes, and elevates the Aquarium to a facility of international standing. The project includes architectural planning and design integration with the new design of the Bosque de la Ciudad, integrated exhibit design, initial life support input, and a final cost estimate of the design.
The historic city of Mazatlán is a resort and fishing capital on the Pacific coast of Mexico that is uniquely situated at the threshold to the narrow Sea of Cortez. With 11,000 sqm. of new building, and the repurposing of nearly 4,000 sqm. of existing facilities, this project will enable the Aquarium to become the world’s leading institution for research, education, and conservation for the Sea of Cortez and its endemic marine life.
