The world’s largest marine science museum will open at Chimelong International Ocean Tourist Resort in Hengqin New Area by the end of 2019.
The Ocean World will have a high tech theme throughout, from the spaceship inspired architecture to the virtual reality experiences inside.  Separated into 10 unique zones, the museum will feature animals from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, which can be viewed inside the immersive exhibit area.  Models, lighting, and visual effects will enhance the experience by displays of ancient seabed with extinct fish and other sea creatures. Interactive multimedia terminals throughout the park will tell the story of particular species of animals, allowing children to learn about how they live in the ocean.
The building share size, progressive design, as well as integration of menagerie, edutainment, and entertainment will make the aquarium stand out among other similar projects worldwide. Functions, such as breeding and R&D, are also planned. The project also features structural engineering breakthroughs involving the basin foundation and the dome structure.
Hetzel Design teamed up with Legacy entertainment to produce concept design for this groundbreaking facility. Legacy provided creative direction, storytelling and show design, while Hetzel was in charge of architecture, planning and exterior design esthetics.
