An Urban Center for Art and Design on the Highline Exhibition

Since AAP re-established a New York City presence in 2005, it has sought to build a permanent home in the city. The studio for master of architecture explores that possibility through the development of an architectural vision for a new center on the Highline, one that defines a new paradigm for interdisciplinary education of the college. Implicit in the process is the exploration of how architecture serves to form and shape experience and memory. Students are required to develop a clear sense of the role and identity the new center plays in both the context of the Cornell AAP experience, as well as its broader relationship to the urban fabric of New York City. 

This exhibition features student work from the fall 2010 class, Arch 5115.
