The main objective for this project was the reactivation of the Coney Island theme park. The goal was to relate the historic structure of the Parachute Tower with the public area of the water front walk programmatically and spatially.
As a direct continuation we use the same wood of the water front walk and the public space are brought seamlessly into the building. The event space, exhibition space, restaurant and the cafe form a continuity of public functions from the ground floor to the upper floor. The service spaces and the administration are separated from the public functions. A multitude of visual connections to the Parachute Tower, water front walk and the other buildings of the theme park expand the pavilion into the context.
