|Red Hook - Sugar Factory|
Although the projects were pure theoretical in nature, the students were given design challenges that are still to this day real issues for Red Hook: "Are green space and urban space mutually exclusive? Is waterfront an obsolete asset? Is Red Hook just an isolated urban island? How do you integrate the diverse sectors of Red Hook, which include public housing, industrial sites, substantial (but inaccessible) park areas, and a waterfront (also largely inaccessible to the public)?"

Since this assignment at Yale shows significant similarities with STUDIO Brooklyn themes, it's worth exploring more of the proposals the students presented.
