The Wyckoff Exchange

02/04/2011

Andre Kikosi has completely transformed a disused warehouse in Brooklyn, New York into The Wyckoff Exchange, an organic food market and live music venue. The building boasts a new motorised Corten steel skin, nodding to the structure’s industrial past. The facade panels can fold out to shelter the pavement and open the space to the street.

The structure takes on a dramatic alter ego by night when the facade is lit by hundreds of LEDs in the perforations of the skin, giving the building a glowing appearace that reflects the vibrancy of the neighbourhood. Images via Dezeen.
