More Coney Island Makeover: Aquarium Redesign

There are three finalist designs for a big renovation of the New York Aquarium in Coney Island, which will help anchor the overall Coney Island redo. The design above, that cuts the whale profile, is from WRT and Cloud9. All of the designs do away with the block-long wall on the boardwalk that the current Robert Moses-era complex presents. A final selection is expected before the end of fall. The other drawings after the jump.
