New York - Red Hook
LOT explores the Red Hook neighbourhood in Brooklyn, New York, a workers-neighbourhood with workshops, garages, family run bars and restaurants, and still a lot of open space. A mixed environment that ensures a capacity to shape an urban subject and urban subjectivity. This can override the religious and ethnic subject, and sometimes, the differences of class, something that few other places than cities can enable. Cut off from the rest of the borough by the Gowanus Expressway, and with no real infrastructure going into the area, it remained isolated and still is the neighbourhood with the highest number of empty lots in New York. The recent waterfront development brings new implants of design in architecture, and new citizens.
