Description

The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, part of the Audubon Nature Institute, was founded by a joint venture called the "Bienville Group," a group of five New Orleans architectural firms. Construction was completed in 1990: 110,000 square feet with three stories, and built of concrete with glazed ceramic brick. The aquarium's design is based around the habitats within it, with ample room for rotational viewings of the animals. The Audubon Aquarium's construction was a significant cultural development for New Orleans and introduced new tourism to the city
