For this project, the GARCIA FAURA Drawing Office and Design and Calculation department have worked extensively on an optimised solution for the project, based on the steel or concrete columns already in situ.
In addition, GARCIA FAURA has installed 60 square metres of enclosures with ventilation panels in the upper section of the building’s walls and has installed four automatic doors and a guided platform for cleaning the building exterior.
The Lisbon Oceanarium was inaugurated in 1998, at Expo ’98. The facility is located in the Parque de las Naciones district, which is one of the most futuristic areas of the Portuguese capital city.
Inside and spread over two floors, up to 15,000 living examples of more than 450 different species can be found, whose natural habitats are the Atlantic, Indian, Pacific and Southern Oceans.
