Innovative proposal to expand and remodel L'Aquàrium

L’Aquàrium de Barcelona is a world-famous aquarium that has been visited by millions of people from all over the world. Now, with an investment of 13 million euros, the aquarium will be renovated and expanded.

In this way, it will become an even more exciting and innovative attraction for visitors.

The aquarium, which is the first of its kind with a Mediterranean theme, has been in operation since 1995 and is home to more than 11,000 different species.

The Barcelona Aquarium is to be enlarged and remodeled

The remodeling and expansion project of the Barcelona Aquarium has been promoted by the company Aspro Ocio, which has received a 12-year extension of its concession to manage the facilities until 2039.

The project has been approved by the Port of Barcelona, which has highlighted innovation and environmental sustainability as key elements of the project.

One of the most notable features of the project is the use of digital technology and immersive experiences to educate visitors about the importance of environmental stewardship and ocean protection.

The project will also include a photovoltaic plant that will generate 12.22% of the energy consumed by the aquarium and the incorporation of LEDs in all the lighting.

This will not only reduce energy consumption, but also improve the visual quality for visitors and animals.

About the remodeling

The remodeling and expansion will also include major changes to the aquarium building, which will open it up to the outside and visually integrate it with the port and the city.

The objective is to achieve greater transparency in the exterior facades and increase the panoramic views of Barcelona.

The remodeling of the Aquàrium is expected to be completed before the start of the 37th edition of the America’s Cup, in August 2024.

The project also focuses on re-launching the center for research, conservation and dissemination of the marine ecosystem, both locally and internationally.

The intention is to strengthen its position as a center for marine conservation in the Mediterranean and to promote social awareness for the preservation of the seas and oceans in the face of climate change.

With this renovation, the Aquàrium de Barcelona wants to offer its visitors an unforgettable experience with which they hope to encourage reflection and environmental knowledge. All through a wonderful technological and visual spectacle.

The renovation and expansion of the aquarium will be a step in the fight against climate change and the promotion of environmental sustainability, two of humanity’s greatest challenges.

The news of the remodeling and expansion of the Barcelona Aquarium is very positive for the city and its visitors.

The project seeks to provide a unique and sustainable experience for visitors and care for the environment.
