About "Designing the Future" at BLDG 92

Throughout “Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present and Future,” we look to the past in honor of the Yard’s rich history, and we celebrate the present as we display the creativity of today’s Yard tenants. In this case, we look to the future!

Part of the Yard’s success has been that many graduates of local higher-education institutions have gone on to start businesses or work in the Yard.  “Designing the Future” features the work of the city's best and brightest design, architecture and engineering students—ideas and products that may one day be developed and manufactured in the Navy Yard.

Returning visitors can expect to continually find new “products of tomorrow” on display here. A sure way to support the Yard’s future growth—including creating new jobs, strengthening our commitment to environmental sustainability and being a good neighbor to our surrounding communities—is to nurture the talents of future Yard innovators and entrepreneurs.

The Newest Installation of Designing the Future will open on November 21st. Stay tuned for details.
