Scripps Earth Exploration Center

This renovation and addition to the existing Birch Aquarium was designed to add 50,000 GSF of new program to supplement the current ocean biology exhibits, and an immersive experience focused on Earth System sciences, while also redesigning and augmenting a number of tanks and touch pools. The addition would add capacity for events and enhance other visitor services amenities to help make the re-positioned institution more self-sustaining. In association with Gensler, San Diego.
