Celebrated Romanticism Along the Industrial Waterfront

This project bridges the remnants of the industrial era to a rapidly expanding residential Brooklyn area (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). The intervention into the old coffee factory becomes a public park created on an elevated ground condition, and a museum, which celebrates a revival of the romanticized view of the industrial era through the imagery of the carousel. The driving force behind this concept of creating moments of connection between the old Dock Street building façade and the waterfront, in gestures that are sometimes physical, and other times implicit. The tower and annex will be composed of a series of nested spaces wrapping around two offset cores. At the very top of the residential tower is the sky carousel, which overlooks the waterfront, Brooklyn, and the Manhattan skyline, framed by the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.
