Interactive Aquarium

At Cohen Childrens Medical Center

Children can add fish to this large virtual aquarium by using a fish builder application on ipads mounted under the large common tank. They design fish and releas them to swim with large turtles submarines and other fish in the tank above.

This installation was produced as part of an expansion of the Cohen Children’s Medical Center at the North Shore LIJ campus. The Rockwell Group completed the site architecture and themed each floor of the hospital. The ground floor was aquatic themed, and this large “aquarium” was commissioned for the emergency room waiting area.
