Aquarium

The existing aquaria exhibits located beneath the Mappin Terraces need to be rebuilt and brought up to modern standards. RHA were commissioned to investigate the possibility of installing a highly immersive coral shark and mangrove experience which could tell a compelling storyline with new aquatic displays whilst incorporating some existing tanks as well.

RHA carried out our unique experiential diagnostic process and prescribed a new sequence of visitor/animal encounters and experiences. The centre piece is an immersive theatrical set where the visitors and sharks appear to inhabit the same space. Complemented by evocative lighting and carefully structured vistas the illusion of boundless waters and being submerged within the sunken hull beneath the shallow waters where the most stunning displays of coral are growing is complete.
