Description

SeaGlass Carousel is a new one-of-a-kind, permanent cultural attraction featuring a monumental nautilus shell with 30 grand luminescent fish. SeaGlass is Open at The Battery, the 25-acre public park at the southern tip of Manhattan. Also open are the glorious Tiffany & Co. Foundation Woodland Gardens that encircle the Carousel.

SeaGlass was conceived by WXY Architecture & Urban Design as a carousel recalling The Battery's history as the original home of the New York Aquarium. WXY then designed a spiraling pavilion of glass and steel inspired by the chambered nautilus. The magnificent fish figures – as large as 9 ½ feet wide and 13 ½ feet tall – were designed by the internationally acclaimed George Tsypin Opera Factory (known for creating the Opening Ceremony for the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi). Unique among carousels worldwide, SeaGlass motors lie under the floor – allowing full visibility across and around the shell, with no center post – and visitors ride within the figures rather than atop them. Visitors will glide through the sights and sounds of a 360° aquatic adventure. Rather than "riding” the fish as one would on a typical carousel, visitors will "become” fish.
