Seattle Aquarium “Puget Sound Orcas Family Activity Center”

client: Seattle Aquarium
location: Seattle, WA | size: 1,200 sq ft opened: 2005


The Seattle Aquarium has a display about Orcas without having any Orcas on display. That is a good thing for the Orcas population but presents a challenge for interpretation. LCS designed a family center that allows people to physically see the scale of the whales and to understand the beloved Puget Sound pods. People get up close and personal, without threat to the habitats, animals, or humans.
