LOT is part of an ongoing project about the transition of Docklands in various capitals with a history of shipbuilding. This publication focuses on the neighbourhood Red Hook in Brooklyn, New York.
Through descriptive, highly detailed photographs, LOT questions the function of public space within Red Hook. How do ideas about living in the city reflect the physical state of the street, and what effect does this have on the community? A mix of landscapes, portraits and details of these exteriors reflect the current state of this neighbourhood, with its contrasts and diversity.
