The Pointe Defiance Zoo & Aquarium (PDZA) was designed by architecture firm EHDD. Sitting in Tacoma, Washington, the project houses a 35,000 square-foot exhibition space where residents and tourists alike can experience a plethora of native Pacific Rim marine life. The building, which replaced the PDZA’s North Pacific Aquarium, features a vast expansion to now include a 250,000-gallon warm water tank which houses impressive scalloped hammerhead sharks and sea turtles.
