CITY GUIDE / NEW YORK / ARTS & CULTURE / JANE'S CAROUSEL

“I didn’t want to build a solid house with a door and some windows, or a little round greenhouse, that would be absolutely without interest. So we negotiate, and arrive at the solution to have a square building to keep the feeling of the carousel itself with almost nothing around. Initially I did a project that was a sliding box and on a good day you would slide it out and there’s the carousel. But here you can completely open two facades and you are outside.”
- French starchitect Jean Nouvel on his acrylic jewelbox that houses “Jane’s Carousel”, a meticulously stored vintage carousel overlooking Brooklyn Bridge.
