Symbol of a New Baltimore
The National Aquarium in Baltimore, designed by Cambridge Seven Associates, originally opened in 1981. The Aquarium occupies a prominent pier at the center of the city's Inner Harbor and attracts almost one and a half million visitors per year. Its exhibits are a celebration of life in diverse aquatic habitats, including fishes of a Caribbean coral reef, sharks in the open sea, and birds, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals of an Amazon rainforest. Cambridge Seven provided site design, programming, architecture, exhibit design, and interior design for the original aquarium as well as exhibit design for the Exploration Station exhibits, master planning for expansion, and the new Pier 3 bridge. C7A was most recently commissioned to renovate the National Aquarium's ray tray for the new “Blacktip Reef" exhibit.
