The Vancouver Aquarium’s $45-million renovation and expansion was unveiled in June 2014 in Vancouver, British Columbia’s Stanley Park as the most significant expansion in the 58-year history of Canada’s largest marine science center. Designed to evoke the flow of water and the wonder of aquatic life, the new two-story 55,000 square-foot aquarium building features a curvilinear architectural design that is clad in sophisticated color-changing aluminum composite material (ACM) mimicking fish scales in hues ranging from green to pink.
