EVENTS @ THE MARINA // Past & Future

Young Woo and Associates (YWA) is excited to present the “Magic Carpet,” an installation of 36 shipping containers suspended from the ceiling in the South Head House of the Pier. With the goals of transforming Pier 57 into a cultural hub and creative center, one of the project’s key elements being the use of repurposed shipping containers as pop-up shops and concept stores, or “Incuboxes,” to activate the interactive marketplace. YWA tasked Spanish Architecture firm CHURTICHAGA + QUADRA-SALCEDO with the objective of using shipping containers to activate the building as well as speak to the objectives of the future project.
