LOT-EK Architecture Uses Recycled Shipping Containers for Its New Structure in Socrates Sculpture Park

Perched on Long Island City’s waterfront, Socrates Sculpture Park is celebrating its 30th anniversary with its first permanent structure.

Its form? Cubes. 

LOT-EK architecture firm’s “The Cubes” — initially commissioned for New York's Whitney Museum of American Art — is composed of eighteen recycled shipping containers that create two levels of indoor space. The building's 960 square feet of flexible interior space promises a multi-functional facility, with most areas built for holding classes of up to 70 people.
