Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
This 90-minute guided walking tour, hosted by Turnstile Tours and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, will take visitors behind the scenes at the Brooklyn Navy Yard to experience the work of IceStone, a manufacturer of unique countertops made from recycled glass. On this tour, visitors will have the opportunity to see the production line in action, learn about their product development and manufacturing process, and learn about the characteristics and installation requirements of IceStone products. A Navy Yard tenant since 2003, IceStone is an industry leader in responsible corporate practices, as a founding Certified B Corporation and recipient of many awards and certifications for their environmental and labor practices. Along the way, this tour will also examine how the Navy Yard has been repurposed for civilian industry, now home to 400 businesses and over 7,000 employees, and look specifically at several development projects that are planned or underway that will greatly expand the Yard's employment capacity.
Participants on this tour can receive AIA CES credits, and you can find the specific learning objectives on the event page.
