Collaborating on the project to date includes: Vaughn Davies, ISAA, known internationally for precedent-setting and large-scale waterfront projects. For Seaport San Diego, he has been working with the team in the planning of the waterfront and public spaces. BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) has provided design for Seaport San Diego's iconic aquarium. BIG is a Copenhagen and New York-based group of designers dominating the architectural scene from Denmark to New York City. Also, internationally-renowned lighting artist Peter Fink, who won the international competition to transform the Coronado Bridge into a light sculpture using renewable energy, has been working with the team to develop special artistic lighting for Seaport San Diego.
Frank Wolden, Principal at AVRP Skyport Studios, says, "Seaport San Diego provides an amazing opportunity to link our city's greatest assets. As Seaport lives up to its ultimate goal, it will be 70 acres that knits together the Bay, the City, the air, Coronado Bridge, and the Midway Museum into incredible experiences."
