Brooklyn Navy Yard Center (Building 92)


The Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at Building 92 (BNYC92) which will serve as a gateway to the community. Through permanent and rotating exhibitions and programming that will explore the Yard`s rich and illustrious history serving both national and local communities, its evolution to become a national model for sustainable industrial parks and its continuing role as a vital economic, manufacturing and cultural hub of Brooklyn. Housed in the renovated 1857 Marine Commandant`s Residence with a modern extension, BNYC92 will educate and inform Brooklynites, New Yorkers and the public about the significant role the Brooklyn Navy Yard has played, and continues to play, in the history of the United States and Brooklyn. With many of the windows in the historic commandant's house blocked off by exhibits, custom light boxes transform the building into a warm presence along the heavily-trafficked street. The entry courtyard welcomes guests with an intimate quality of light and human-scale fixtures. The building and its lighting were designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification.
