TC ARCHITECTS DESIGNS THE SPACE FOR THE AKRON ZOO'S NEW EXHIBIT

The Akron Zoo is inviting guests to take a magical journey under the sea this summer!  Recently, the zoo opened its newest exhibit, Journey to the Reef.  Designed by TC Architects, the exhibit features over 17 aquariums of animals that live on or near the reef, live coral and a stingray touch pool. The area also includes several interactive areas for children to learn about ocean life and conservation.
 
Journey to the Reef includes an octopus, eels, sea horses, venomous lionfish, clownfish, three species of jellyfish (Japanese sea nettles, upside down jellies and moon jellies), starfish, schooling fish, crabs and more.

The entire exhibit space features a 10,000 square foot mural created by local artist Amy Mothersbaugh-Roos and several volunteers.
