Coney Island #1: Where the Fish Will Sleep

The design for the radical remake of the New York Aquarium in Coney Island has been selected. The New York Sun reports that the design created by Philadelphia-based Wallace, Roberts & Todd aka WRT, and Barcelona-based Cloud 9, the one that kind of looks like a big whale with a lot of lights, is the winner. There's a vid of the design posted over at YouTube if the renderings and drawings aren't enough. No construction timetable set.
