Jane's Carousel, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn

Housing one of the most exquisitely made carousels from the 1920s, the Carousel pavilion sits on the edge of the East River and at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge. The pavilion was designed by the Pritzker-Prize-winning architect Jean Novel. It features two 70' x 30' faces fabricated from 4.5" acrylic polymer panels and supported with no vertical steel elements. The two alternate 70' x 30' faces are operable doors, fabricated in Switzerland by a company which specializes in doors for aircraft hangars. TADA produced the construction drawings for the building and was the Architect of Record for the project.
