Proudly Mzantsi company chosen to design for Miami science museum

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.
