Our brief: maximize the exhibition and display space within the envelope of a multi-story building. Our solution: a multi-layered aquarium including a walk-through rainforest and the world’s largest cylinder tube tank.

Spread over 6 floors, Eleven Times Square Aquarium’s seven different thematic zones offer a comprehensive experience from rainforest to river delta to the abyssal depths. With differing environments accurately replicated, visitors can be transported between the likes of the Amazon rainforest, Mekong Delta, Sub Arctic, and deep ocean.

A 200-foot-long underground tunnel with panoramic views offers a fully immersive experience where guests can experience the ocean depths under 108,000 cubic feet of water.

For the Big Apple, we knew we had to go large. This concept has the largest atrium walk-through rainforest in the world, as well as the largest cylinder tube tank in the world at 60 feet high with 100,000 cubic feet of tropical reef.

Currently on hold and seeking investment to proceed, this project now has a solid foundation for commercial success and can be replicated within any high-rise building in the world.
