Brooklyn Bridge Park Pop-Up Pool

Spacesmith with partner firm Davis Brody Bond transformed a riverside stretch into a colorful recreational destination for children and adults. The Brooklyn Bridge Pop-up Pool has become a popular oasis to escape the heat, provide active recreation, promote water safety with swimming lessons, and have fun.  Repurposed shipping containers painted in bold, primary colors provide storage space and buffer the noise of the BQE.

I think it was a really great idea to come up with instead of leaving the land unused until development. This was something that would give back to the community and would compliment the uses of the park, being right on the water.
