About the event:

The famed 19th century William Ulmer Brewery is located within a multi-building historic district in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn. In 1872, the building was constructed as a brewery for pioneering German brew master, William Ulmer. It is a quintessential example of pre-Prohibition brewery architecture, and it is one of the last remaining and best maintained structures from an era in which
Brooklyn was the brewery capital of the United States.

In 2010, the building was designated an individual landmark by New York’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC), and falls under NY State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) jurisdiction as well. DXA studio is currently working to restore the building to its former grandeur while converting it to much-needed housing.
