Amant is an arts campus spread across three blocks of rapidly changing, industrial North Brooklyn. This cultural incubator functions both privately and publicly, with artist studios, galleries, offices, storage, and a cafe. Rather than an inward-looking space isolated from its urban context, SO-IL’s collection of distributed volumes weaves itself into the fabric of the city. Materials render the buildings partly anonymous. Deeply textured form liners shape cast-in-plane concrete. Bricks rotate out of plane to catch a shadow. Galvanized steel bars toy with reflection and transparency. They nestle comfortably within their manufacturing and industrial storage context, and, up close, offer surprising tactilities, details, and depth that betray the familiar and the everyday.
