A unique survey of the projects, products, and processes that define LOT-EK, the firm at the forefront of adapting prefabricated industrial units to create cutting-edge architecture.

LOT-EK is a design practice that believes in being unoriginal, ugly, and cheap. Also in being revolutionary, gorgeous, and completely luxurious.

LOT-EK’s work reveals extraordinary transformations of ordinary things - from their famous shipping container projects onward - combining maker culture and hacker culture into beautiful and radical visions for sustainable and meaningful living.

LOT-EK: Objects + Operations surveys dozens of projects - built, unbuilt and in-progress; polemical, practical, and in-between - complemented by photographs from LOT-EK’s multi-year URBAN SCAN project, a vast photographic document of infrastructure and incident, as well as essays by Thomas de Monchaux and interviews with founding partners Ada Tolla and Giuseppe Lignano.
