Coney Island #2: New Aquarium Design Selected!

Aquarium-Model
Turns out a new design for the New York Aquarium has been selected. The New York Sun reports that it was told that
the design created by Philadelphia-based Wallace, Roberts & Todd aka WRT, and Barcelona-based Cloud 9 has been chosen. (It was certainly our personal favorite.) Renderings are available over at ruiz-geli.com. There's also an animation of the design posted on YouTube. There is no timeline for construction yet. More renderings below.

How appropriate - from all angles, it looks like a big old Coney Island Whitefish.
