The New Amsterdam Pavilion, the result of a US, Dutch collaboration has been unveiled at Peter Minuit Plaza, Battery Park, New York.

Dutch architect Ben van Berkel from UN Studio designed the low-rise glass and concrete structure which forms a four-pointed windmill on its back.

The enclosed structure will serve as a digital information centre about Battery, the wider New York area and on events held in The Netherlands.

The pavilion, which will also house catering facilities with seating on the surrounding Plein, is expected to have six million visitors and will be fully integrated into its surroundings when landscaping is complete.

Part of Peter Minuit Plaza will be renamed as the New Amsterdam Plein.

Ben van Berkel said the pavilion is also focused on the future by virtue of its role as a modern transportation hub within the constantly changing scene of Lower Manhattan.
