An Architecturally Significant Merry-Go-Round?

“The architects at Weisz + Yoes didn’t set out to reinvent the merry-go-round. But when the firm was asked to transform Manhattan’s Battery Park into a tourist magnet, that’s exactly what it ended up doing… Instead of garishly painted horses, the seats will be translucent fiberglass molded into dolphins, turtles, clownfish, and other marine life. And unlike a traditional carousel, which spreads out from a center column like an umbrella, these creatures will be supported from below on a turntable, allowing unobstructed 360-degree views.”
