Hp 2020 studio   red hook brooklyn 1

This historic preservation studio focused on how preservation can serve as a tool to promote equitable resilience in the community of Red Hook, Brooklyn, by critically exploring the following questions:

  • How are diverse histories, narratives, and multiple publics represented in the built environment of Red Hook?
  • In what ways have the community values and heritage resources of Red Hook evolved and been challenged – historically and more recently – by environmental factors (e.g. land reclamation, coastal flooding, pollution and brownfields contamination, etc.) as well as socio-economic and political factors (industrial shifts, demographic change, new development, etc.)?
  • How can the preservation enterprise intervene, so as to instrumentalize heritage toward equitable resilience in Red Hook?
