Old industrial buildings were build to last, and I personally see a huge value in giving them a new life, and telling their stories from the past.

It used to be an old abandoned elevated railroad now transformed into a public park. What I like the most about the project is the social aspect of it, giving a public park to the society, not tearing it down and building another private office building. It's also the only park in NY with a view.

Traditional craft tell stories about culture and history of a place. It focuses local and every item is unique. The social aspect in learning and including the local resources are qualities that are important in our society today. The Spinnery focuses on local involvement and resources.

Massproduced products are in many ways a contrast to handcrafted. They are produced in large numbers, and are cheap to buy. It is easy to throw away when we want something new. The products are often shipped across the globe to reach their consumers.
