Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier Project Details
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Architect: Easton Architects
System: SKYSHADE 3100
The waterfront along the East River and New York Harbor in Brooklyn, NY has been revitalized as a place for recreation and community. To encourage public use, athletic courts for handball, basketball, and soccer were implemented on Pier 2. Easton Architects incorporated a significant amount of the pier's original structure during the design process. They elected to use EXTECH's SKYSHADE 3100 canopy system to shield people from the elements while they enjoyed the pier's amenities.
The SKYSHADE 3100 is built with the industry's most advanced aluminum perimeter framing system. This canopy's framing system uses low friction gaskets that allow thermal movement of the polycarbonate panels and eliminate noise caused by this thermal movement. Low friction gaskets improve the lifespan of the canopy system.
