The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Miami is said to be setting a new standard for museums and aquariums around the globe.
The museum which opened in May this year, features a massive suspended 1.9 million litre aquarium tank, holding sharks, turtles and a host of other sea creatures as well as a state of the art planetarium.
Cape Town based company Formula D Interactive is proudly South African and was selected to design some of the flagship experiences for the museum.
Marco Rosa, Managing Director, Formula D Interactive says this opening will expose South Africa's design talent and expertise.
There was a conference in Cape Town and the CEO of the museum attended the conference and while he was here, looked us up and came to meet us.— Marco Rosa, Managing Director, Formula D Interactive

Rosa adds that they were also asked to pitch two virtual reality exhibits which are there to give people a better understanding of how sharks exist and hunt.
