SeaWorld Wild Arctic Exhibit

SeaWorld designed a spectacular indoor attraction to feature their arctic sea life. “Wild Arctic” required two large artificial skies to cover their ambitious exhibit, a complex space that include a beluga whale tank, a polar bear habitat, a walrus environment, arctic terrain, and a reproduction of an arctic shipwreck.

Creating a realistic sky over the space required a single structure that provided an arched ceiling above some areas, and a spherical dome above others. When complete, the entire ceiling had to appear smooth and seamless. Spitz designed and manufactured fully suspended structures that combined spherical and cylindrical shapes.

Made entirely of aluminum and stainless steel, the frames and panels were powder coated to withstand the harsh salt water environment.
