Cornell’s M.Arch.2 program provides a platform to combine technological exploration and artistic experimentation, passing on the enduring originality of architecture and composing architectural melody on both local and global scales.
The first semester of the post-professional program takes place in New York City, where we refine skill sets and take seminars at the epicenter of the design world. The second semester showcases a series of graduate studio options covering the five territories alongside electives drawn from the department and across the university.
My choice was the Mumbai Studio where we embarked on a 10-day field trip to Mumbai and Ahmedabad, after which we explored a lot of data and scenarios as our basis of design. In my third semester I picked the UNBOXED studio, which aimed to develop an abstract tectonic system for an evolved museum typology through a range of digitally driven aggregation and distribution techniques.
