The Architect’s Newspaper published this rendering of a new rooftop canopy coming to Crown Heights’ Brooklyn Children’s Museum next summer. From AN: “The canopy with an EFTE skin covered in a dot matrix frit will allow the rooftop to be used for lectures, concerts, and other events, including the museum hopes, in the blazing hot summer months. The designers say the frit is meant to mimic the dappled light of a tree.” The arch of the rooftop will span 75 feet. The same architect, Toshiko Mori, plans to renovate the building’s restrooms and theaters. Click through for one more shot.
