Take all the cool that Italian design that drips into the Diesel brand and then distill it into a single location.  The result is more then a super hip  jeans store, it is the Diesel Denim Gallery.  While you can also shop for the best in Diesel-ware, the canvas for art installations is reason enough to visit.  Artists like Korban FlaubertClemens Kogler, Paul Clay, Jason Hackenwerth and his balloon art, Christian Nguyen, and Jaime Hayon Arrojadoa with Elements designed for Moooi.  Sebastien Agneesens, the founder of Formavision, has orchestrated the majority of the exhibitions.

Shop for accessories, a few lines designed especially for the store, and ‘limited edition’ hand made denim jeans.  If you are curious about the jeans phenomenon, a new documentary Blue Gold can shed some light.

The Diesel Denim Gallery itself is warm and open.   The furniture and displays are hand crafted and unique,  while the space swims with the natural light.  The staff is friendly and obviously happy being there.

The current design of the Monterrey Bay Aquarium was achieved by the architects Esherick Homsey Dodge & Davis; who later, in 1988, received an honorary Award from he American Institute of Architects for their outstanding work.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium was the first in the world to grow live California Giant Kelp.  One of their signature attractions, you relax on perfectly placed benches and marvel at the 8.5m (27.8 ft.) tall kelp forest as Pacific creatures flit between the waving strands, swaying like the hair of some sea-deep leviathan.  Sardines, leopard sharks, wolf-eels, rockfish… the tank swirls with life as it circulates fresh salt-water direct from the Bay combined with a wave machine to create an endless dance of life.

In their tranquil fluidity, the jellyfish rooms create an ambience that seems to reflect the regions psychedelic history.  Perfect, Kreisel tanks (aquariums with slow, circular water flows, no hard corners and a minimum interior hardware) prevent the delicate life from geting hurt while their circular flow moves the translucent forms as if suspended in orbit.

Other exhibits include Giant Pacific Octopuses,  Sea Horses and the ever favorite Sea Dragons.  At the back of the aquarium, overlooking the pacific is “Life on the Bay.”  A place to spot wild sea otters, pelicans, dolphins, harbor seals, sea birds and the rest of the denizens of the coast.

The Monterrey Bay Aquarium is deeply commited to marine life conservation and you can easily learn about and become involved in the different campains end awareness programs they offer, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program.

From the Monterrey Bay Aquarium Press Release:

In the Ocean’s Edge galleries, fresh seawater is pumped continuously and directly from Monterey Bay to maintain the great diversity of plant and animal life in the exhibits. By day, filtration leaves the water clear for public viewing. At night, unfiltered seawater flows through the exhibits. The raw seawater not only sustains filter-feeding animals, it also carries in spores and larvae of plant and animal life that settle and grow in the exhibits – making the exhibits a “living extension” of the bay. Water enters through two 16-inch-diameter, 980-foot-long intake lines located 55 feet deep in the bay. Pumps draw up to 2,050 gallons of seawater per minute into the aquarium seawater distribution system, 24 hours a day, seven days a week – more than a billion gallons of water a year. Four operating modes permit varying levels of filtration, from raw seawater to pressure-sand-filtered, de-embolyzed seawater. Most aquariums are located on polluted bodies of water or inland of the coast, making “open” system designs like this impossible.
