The energy is ramping up for the Brooklyn Night Bazaar and if the rendering of the interior by hot Euro architects JDS/Julien de Smeldt is any indication, it’s going to be quite a trip.

According to Architizer:

 It looks like the team is seriously upping the ante with plans to take over a 40,000 sq ft warehouse on the Williamsburg waterfront using demarcated spaces inspired by the set of Lars Von Trier’s Dogville. The rendering reveals a stage curved like a half-pipe along with light and video installations by NBNY, the stars of Greenpoint’s Bring to Light festival, projected onto the 30-foot tall walls and ceilings.

… As we are seeing more and more, good architecture is no longer restricted to its service to the rich and powerful, but it is increasingly used as a means to empower more democratic enterprises. On a lighter note, we expect this to be one hell of a party.

Oh geez, they are taking inspiration from Von Trier’s Dogville? I can’t imagine anything more perfectly Williamsburg. Also, Architizer’s Kelly Chan is completely right, the tone of the project is pretty well suited for the times. Can’t wait. You can check out the impressive floor plan renderings on the JDS site.

    Immature and cliche.

      Be specific. What do you think is immature and cliche? The design?

      I admit I was a raver back in the day and this is partly why this appeals to me.
