Staten Island Art Center & Artist Residence

Staten Island in recent years has been a hotspot for artists for working, living, or gathering because of its affordability, especially around the north shore area since the area is not as residential as the rest of the island and there are more available spaces. However, a recent series of private developments is taking place or have taken place around the north shore specifically, aiming to transform the “forgotten” borough into an internationally-renowned tourist attraction. Meanwhile, Staten Island has also been a territory of abandonment and disuse, with many large-scale infrastructures dotted across the island. The project aims to reutilize these large abandoned or disused infrastructural pieces and reassemble them in a new architectural form, enabling them to fulfill their original promises of providing community facilities. The building is seen as a reassembly of made elements instead of a new construction of materials.
