The Portico Group had the primary responsibility for designing the new Alaska Coast Exhibit at Mystic Aquarium, featuring beluga whales and harbor seals. The Alaska Coast Exhibit describes a geologic story – an estuarian setting at the point Where the Land Ends and the Sea Begins; where glacial scouring of bays and inlets, such as may have occurred in Cook Inlet or Prince William Sound, has left clues to their early formation. By replicating an Alaskan inlet with Bay, Cobble Beach and Rocky Shore Tidal areas, the exhibit captures the mood of the environment and brings a sense of its remoteness to the visitors.
