Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project

The RDCSMM completed the interpretive design for the restoration of Malibu Lagoon, and its staff and consultants have designed a unique outdoor interpretive center where the designed forms of the landscape and site-specific architecture interact with the tidal and seasonal changes in the lagoon to introduce visitors to this critical ecosystem.
