Cornell Tech features unique and innovative architecture connected by an open, public campus design. The architects share thoughts on the concept and realization of their buildings: Thom Mayne and Scott Lee (Morphosis) on the Bloomberg Center; Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi (Weiss/Manfredi) on the Tata Innovation Center; Blake Middleton (Handel Architects) on The House residential tower; and Craig Dykers and Michael Cotton (Snøhetta) on the Verizon Education Center and Hotel. James Corner (Field Operations) discusses the campus design as a unifying element.
The Bloomberg Center also features spectacular site-specific art by Matthew Ritchie, Michael Riedel, Matthew Day Jackson, and Alison Elizabeth Taylor, as well as WPA murals recovered from the demolished Choler Goldwater Hospital. Dan Huttenlocher, Dean of Cornell Tech, provides contextual remarks.
