Istanbul Aquarium

Florya

This stunning aquarium in Istanbul opened in the summer of 2011. Paragon Creative worked as the lead thematic and interactive contractor. The finished results are spectacular and approach the design and fit-out of aquariums in a unique and innovative way 

We have created many varied and exciting environments including a huge corian based interactive map incorporating thousands of LEDs, a full sized Noah’s Ark, a Global Warming area featuring a real iceberg, a sunken Liberty Ship wreck, a huge interactive Suez Canal model with interactives showing the progression of the build of the Canal and a Nautilus submarine experience to name only a few features.

One of our most stunning areas is the recreation of a Mediterranean cave system, measuring over 700 sq meters in area. The artificial rock work was ‘live’ sculpted in specially mixed sprayed concrete over a complex structural steel form, then meticulously hand painted to ensure absolute realism. One of the main challenges was to ensure the design of the cave integrated seamlessly with the numerous aquarium tanks which were already installed in the area. This was overcome by our design engineers computer modelling of the whole sub-frame system and theming prior to construction.

This major project involved all our departments including sculpture, metalwork, scenic and theming, interactives, design, GRP, and of course our joinery team.
