The Ocean Discovery Centre will encourage a greater connection with earth’s environment and positively impact people’s perception and understanding of how we use our oceans. The facility will be an inspiring collection of interactive displays, robotics, submersibles and IMAX experiences showcasing the history, the present, and revealing the future of ocean ecology & sustainable technologies. The Ocean Discovery Centre, a Nanaimo Deep Discovery Association initiative, positions Nanaimo as a better place to live and visit. Visit the NDDA website for more information.
The images below represent a very preliminary concept for the project, based primarily on massing diagrams produced in 2016. It is anticipated that after a site has been selected the project will undergo significant revisions to address site constraints and an updated program.
