Ocean Wonders: Shark! has been selected as a recipient of a 2012 Award for Excellence in Design by the New York City Public Design Commission. In 2009, Portico began work on this 57,000-square-foot facility that will house sharks, rays, sea turtles, and thousands of fish. Because of the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, Portico is currently working with the Aquarium to design in-safety measures that will help mitigate impacts from future storms. OceanWonders: Shark! is planned to open in Spring 2016. You can view the entire list of winners here.
