PARACHUTE JUMP PAVILION
INTERNATIONAL IDEAS COMPETITION
Location: New York, USA
Area: 600 sq.m.
Team D. Diamantakos
The Parachute Jump appears in the surrounding landscape as a gigantic totemic figure
devoted to the golden Cooney Island period, symbolizing the whole vision of an epoch.
Any building with strong morphological characteristics would find itself displaced
compared to the adjacent physical presence of the 260ft. tall metallic tower. Following
these guidelines the project proposes a transparent “playing field” which accentuates
events; a structure that exists to house the activities that it generates and offers
visual connections to the ocean and the Parachute Jump.
