BROOKLYN MELTING POT

The United States is often referred to as the Great Melting Pot. This is not always so obvious on the buildings we work on. But at Bishop Ford, a Catholic School built in Brooklyn in 1962 where CTA is designing a renovation for a new public school, true East/West ornamentation is visible. The crucifix over the main entrance grows out of a Torii, a common Asian symbol most often seen in gates leading to Japanese Shinto shrines.
