The Terrace at the Brooklyn Navy Yard



Architecture, Daylighting & Lighting Design: Juan José Acosta


Building 77 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard was a massive windowless military structure that sits next to the East River in Brooklyn.  In recent years, the New York City government has pushed to transform the structure and the Navy Yard into a tech industry hub, where creative companies will thrive.  The Terrace is a concept that looks at one problem within the proposals: the lack of communal space for the newcomers.
