NYC Concrete Facility
New York City's Economic Development Corporation selected RODE to design a high-tech concrete facility on the western edge of the Sunset Park neighborhood in Brooklyn, along the Gowanus Expressway. The form of the facility’s iconic, central structure celebrates the massive aggregate mixers and silos contained within. Site design uses contrasting ground surfaces to choreograph the time-sensitive operational logistics of the concrete trucks. Due to the facility's close proximity to the water, the project incorporates flood protection technologies to protect it and the adjacent coastline during extreme weather events.
