In 2011 Landing Studio began installing cameras and capturing the dock landscape at varied intervals and durations of time and from varied vantages in and around the terminal. The intent of executing these studies is to dissect and make legible the site systems that are shaping and being shaped by the intersection of industry in the city, as these systems are the medium of our design work.

Time-lapse photography de-emphasizes the formal properties of the scene and foregrounds kinetic transformation. In this way, time-lapse has become a fitting medium for advancing the study of animate industrial landscapes.
