Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey, CA

Architect: EHDD Architecture, San Francisco, CA

Well-known and loved, the Monterey Bay Aquarium has been conserving and educating visitors about marine life for over 25 years. The facility includes four stories of aquarium / museum space and occupies the Old Hovden Cannery buildings located directly on the waterfront. The museum features exhibit areas, a 300-seat auditorium, restaurant, classrooms, offices, and research facilities. Charles M. Salter Associates was responsible for mechanical equipment noise and vibration reduction. Our firm also provided the acoustical design of the exhibit and circulation areas to attain comfortable noise and reverberation levels.
