Summary 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.
