LISBON EXPO'98 VISION

Oceans Pavilion

The Oceans Pavilion is Europe’s largest Oceanarium and was Expo's centerpiece on Olivais Dock, a man-made island. The $63-million Oceans pavilion consists of two buildings connected by a two-tier pedestrian bridge. The Oceanarium building is composed of a large central tank representing the open sea and four smaller tanks representing coastal habitat of the North Atlantic, Antarctic, Pacific, and the Indian Oceans. The Administration building serves as a gift shop, staff-support and access to a pedestrian bridge that connects to the Oceanarium building. The exhibition included flora and fauna totaling 25,000 specimens of 300 species. The pavilion was design by American architect Peter Chermayeff, who created aquariums in Boston; Baltimore; Chattanooga; Osaka, Japan; and Geneva, Switzerland.
