Seeking expanded capacity to serve a growing audience, the Brooklyn Children’s Museum wanted a new public presence that would contribute to the vitality of the surrounding community. The structure is distinct from its context, in color as well as physical form, yet remains welcoming and deferntial to the museum’s existing built environment. The architecture of the building is compelling and inviting to children, its glittering envelope of yellow ceramic tiles creativing a public landmark in the neighborhood.

This program is organized in conjunction with Archtober, New York City’s month-long architecture and design festival.
