Aquarium Of The Pacific

Client: Turner/Kajima Joint Venture

Location: Long Beach, California

Landscape Architect: Joseph A. Wetzel Associates


A shore thing. Aquarium of the Pacific is the fourth largest aquarium in the country and the largest in Southern California. The five-acre waterfront site is home to 11,000 animals that represent the Pacific Ocean's diversity. Our work here was both land-based -- and for the birds. We installed landscaping for the 50-plus exhibits inside and outside of the aquarium building, as well as an avian habitat. With more than 1.5 million visitors per year, it's the ultimate place for the sea to be seen.
