Giving Day 2016
You came to Cornell as aspiring architect, artist, or planner and you left as part of the AAP family. Wherever your path has taken you since your time in Sibley, Milstein, Rand, or Tjaden halls, or The Foundry, we hope that you will support AAP on Cornell's annual Giving Day and show that the smallest college on campus can have the biggest impact.
Below is a sampling of the many activities supported by AAP alumni and friends:
Student and Faculty Travel:
- Jenny Sabin's exhibition at the Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt Museum would not have been possible without the on-site installation help in New York City from Max Vanatta (B.Arch. '16) and Andrew Moorman (B.Arch. '17).
- Three M.R.P. students traveled to Indonesia to attend the Urban Social Forum, and then to other areas of the country to conduct research for their exit projects.
- Iñaqui Carnicero, visiting assistant professor in architecture, was selected to cocurate the Spanish pavilion for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, requiring significant travel to and from Italy.
- The M.F.A. cohort traveled to Germany in the spring of 2015 on their first programmatic trip abroad; students just returned from a spring 2016 trip to Mexico City.
Lecture Series, Symposiums, and Mentorship Programs:
- Already this semester, the Edgar A. Tafel Lecture series has brought to campus notable architects Michael Wilford, Sou Fujimoto, and Achim Menges, among others.
- On March 2, Nina Rappaport delivered the FXFOWLE Lecture for Sustainability, Urbanism, and Design
- In early April, the annual L. Michael Goldsmith Lecture at AAP NYC featured Handel Architects' presentation of the new high-rise on Roosevelt Island, the first tall building built to passive house standards.
- Held in the fall, this year's Preston H. Thomas Memorial Lecture featured a symposium and exhibition on the Colombian city.
- A gift from the estate of David Teiger '51 allowed the successful Teiger Mentor in the Arts Program to continue.
- Doug Hocking (B.Arch. '89), principal at Kohn Pedersen Fox, and other alumni hosted a Portfolio Development Day at KPF for B.Arch. students studying at AAP NYC in the fall.
