Ocean View

The Pacific Visions expansion to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, Calif., featured some impressive numbers, as illustrated by these infographics created by the project's steel fabricator, TrueNorth Steel.

The expansion opened in 2019 and houses an immersive theater, additional special exhibition and art galleries, and increased space for live animal exhibits within a curvaceous facade clad with a grid of privacy glass of various shades. It used 350 tons of structural steel and 4,831 connection bolts to hold it all together--all delivered from Minnesota in 30 truckloads. To learn more about this fascinating project, check out "California Dreaming" in the May issue.
