SeaGlass is a carousel like no other.
The 2,575 square foot pavilion—a huge chambered nautilus—designed by wxy architects spirals and shines amid The Battery’s flora.
SeaGlass lacks the center pole of a traditional carousel. Instead, the four turntables are driven by electric motors housed below the floor.
Each of the 30 massive fiberglass fish was custom designed and fabricated for SeaGlass by Show Canada. Internally illuminated with color-changing LED light fixtures and outfitted with integrated audio systems, each fish is designed to recall the bioluminescence found deep in the ocean.
The show’s underwater atmosphere is created through LED color-changing lighting combined with “water effect” light projectors hung from a custom-designed helical light ring.
