Best Public Space Jane’s Carousel Pavilion, Brooklyn, New York

6 of 22

Designed by Atelier Jean Nouvel

In a completely unexpected pairing, a richly detailed carousel (1922) and a see-through minimalist shed (2011) jointly occupy a dramatic waterfront site in the shadow of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. The carousel is open to the public, and after sunset, the pavilion’s acrylic walls are illuminated, creating a light show visible across the river and from the bridges above.
