Pioneer Works - Center for Art and Innovation - Red Hook, Brooklyn

Conversion and restoration of an existing brick and heavy timber building in Red Hook, Brooklyn. 

Built in 1866, the building was first occupied by Pioneer Iron Works, one of the largest machine manufacturers in the United States - constructing ships, boilers, tanks, sheet iron, detachable railroad tracks, grain elevators, and machinery for sugar plantations. 

Pioneer Works was founded by the artist Dustin Yellin in 2010.
