BROOKLYN CHILDREN’S MUSEUM


The Brooklyn Children’s Museum Rooftop Canopy is an open-air structure that sits atop the existing roof terrace. The second-floor canopy roof is made up of 2 layers of ETFE cladding (Ethylene Tetra Fluoro Ethylene) that is fabricated into cushions (or pillows) that are pressurized with air. These cushions are translucent and allow light to pass through and also be reflected upon to create unique visual effects. The overall plan area of the clear-span canopy is 7,500 square feet. The wide-open space is ideal for accommodating many different functions inducing performances, dining, and other events. The rooftop canopy sits right outside the existing café allowing guests to eat under the canopy and enjoy the outdoors. The curved steel design allows easy access from all sides of the canopy. The canopy structure is a striking and dynamic solution for the needs of the museum.
