Canadian Museum of Nature

Tenji participated in the $216 million major renovation of this 100-year-old heritage building, and helped modernize it for the 21st century. Putting a new exhibit in an historical building required careful engineering, so that the floor could handle the load and the pipes could go through to the appropriate places. The largest freshwater exhibit in the facility features a tank with an invisible barrier, and 360-degree viewing, so that on one side one can see prey fish, and on the other predator fish. In addition, Tenji designed and built a custom exhibit to look just like the Rideau River that runs through Ottawa.
