3D map of Brooklyn Bridge Park

Jun 22, 2016

Modern Craft designed this twelve foot long 3D map for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s educational center.
The design intent was to tell a story through a material pallet that focuses the attention on the park lands and their proximity/interaction with the water. Details of the park grounds are shown in color on laser cut euro-ply topographies. The water is tempered glass, with a compass rose and subway lines etched below the surface. The surrounding buildings, and bridges are included to inform the viewer by grounding the park to various familiar landmarks.
