The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores
Pine Knoll Shores, North Carolina

Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium Renovation and Addition is designed in a style expressing the history, waters, and environment of the barrier islands of North Carolina. The new exhibition space was created to expand the Aquariums storyline: “North Carolinas Aquatic Life from the Mountains to the Sea.” This expansion was sited carefully to avoid historic wetlands and complement the adjacent forest. The 95,000 square foot facility is designed to sit quietly within the Theodore Roosevelt National Forest.
